Lent 5 – 21st March

Being Light – candle

Lent begins in the dimness of late winter and ends with the burst of bright spring. Jesus is, according to John’s gospel, ‘The Light of the world’ and that Light insists: ‘You are the light of the world. Don’t be hiding under some bushel basket.’

Light a candle and reflect on these Bible verses:

John 8:12 NIV

When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”

Matthew 5:14 NIV

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.


  • So where do you shine?
  • How do you keep your light lit?


Light of the world, walk among us, illuminating God in our midst. Amen
