Stories from Joe Handley, president of A3

You are the Light of the World

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. - Matthew 5:14-16

In June, I had the privilege of visiting my friend and A2/Cambodia National Director, Meng Aun Hour, in Cambodia. Meng took my daughters and me to a town several hours outside the capital city, Phnom Penh. There we experienced one of A2's core values: Reproducing Disciple-Making Leaders.

Meng and four other A2/Cambodia graduates were taking what they had learned through Asian Access and applying it to next level leaders in this town. For most of the day, other than the 6-7 hours of travel, I listened intently to a South African Pastor illuminate principles of walking by faith. It was powerful teaching!

Then, at the end, I had the distinct pleasure of sharing with these younger leaders how they are the light of the world. As you know, Jesus tells his disciples in Matt 5:14 that they are the light of the world. In that Jesus is saying that we have the awesome privilege of passing along the joy and life that He has given to us. What an honor!

Did you know that You are the Light of the World? As such, you are reproducing disciple-making leaders!

Share with us how you can be a light!
