Extended Metaphor: Glow In The Dark

"You are the light of the world" - Jesus

What's the point of wearing a glow in the dark t-shirt if you never go anywhere where it's dark?

What's the point of singing "This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine" if we remain safely under the flood lamps of our churches?

and, of course, a glow-in-the-dark shirt loses its shine if it [i]only[/i] spends its time in the dark.

that's the dual focus we're supposed to have--illuminated by the grace of jesus so we can bring that light into the dark and hidden places.
