The Baptism of the Lord

"I formed you, and set you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations" Isaiah 42, 6b
Are you a visible light?
Many who start their journey confine themselves away from others...hidden and invisible. But Jesus wants us to be the light ( c.f. Matthew 5, 14b).
How can we "open the eyes of the blind....bring prisoners from confinement" if we separate ourselves from others? Jesus never separated Himself from others( c.f.
Matthew 9, 11-12).
Be a light to others and listen to God say to you: "This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased" Matthew 3, 17.
