Luke 11:33 No one after lighting a lamp puts it in a cellar or under a basket, but on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.
Or do they? Isn't Jesus stating the obvious? The whole purpose of turning on the light is to use that light for seeing things in the room. Why would anyone light a lamp and then put it where it can't be seen or isn't any use? That's just a waste of energy.
The light of the kingdom is to be on display so that people may benefit from it, make use of it, see what they are doing. If we have it, we have to display it so that it can be seen and used.
