Is the Lens Clean?

Lighthouse Keepers know the importance of keeping the lens clean. Lives depend on it! How awful it must be to be at sea and it is so dark that you fear you may be headed for the rocks! How scary and dangerous to walk a dark path at night with no stars or moon giving off light. Some might think they know where they are going and finally realize that they are completely lost. If you have ever been enveloped in darkness and someone shines a light, what a relief; what a good feeling. People stumble through life in spiritual darkness with only imagined seeing. They are headed for eternal darkness and only a few find the Light of the World. Those who do are to be reflectors of that Light. However, if their lens is dirty with sin, their reflection is going to be limited and may not be able to help someone who needs the Light. This is that which Paul, under inspiration, wrote about in Philippians 2:15: “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.” P.P. Bliss’ hymn, “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning, speaks to this: “Brightly beams our Father’s mercy from His lighthouse evermore, but to us He gives the keeping of the lights along the shore. Dark the night of sin has settled, loud the angry billows roar; eager eyes are watching, longing, for the lights along the shore. Trim your feeble lamp, my brother; some poor sailor, tempest-tossed, trying now to make the harbor, in the darkness may be lost. Let the lower lights be burning! Send a gleam across the wave! Some poor fainting, struggling seaman you may rescue, you may save.” Selah! Keep the lens clean, reflect the Light and God will dispel darkness for those who will come to Him.     Ron
