A City Set On A Hill

“You are a city set on a hill. Your lives are to draw the observation of others. The occasion of this must be something very remarkable and distinguishing. The lives of Christians should stand out. There should be something about professing believers that attracts the attention of other people. A city set on a hill, Christ used that illustration for a purpose, is above the level of what is common. It is above the level of the ground around it, and can be seen from a distance. It invites observation from all who pass by. When believers are very much distinguished from others, that will draw the notice of the world. Anything that is singular or unusual will make an impression on people. Jesus wants His people to stand out; it is God’s purpose that we be like a city set on a hill.”  –Notes by Mike Stohlmeyer on Jonathan Edwards “Sermons and Discourses–A City Set On A Hill” Vol. 19, pp. 540-541

About Maureen Stohlmeyer

Grateful to have been married to my wonderful husband Michael for nearly 35 years who is now with the Lord, I would like to share from writers from the past who have strengthened our faith and walk with Jesus Christ our Savior and Redeemer. His walk with God was deeply enriched by the writings of authors from the past and I dedicate this blog to him and to them.
