Light Quality-2

Let’s look at the the other side of yesterday’s subject. Having been rescued from eternal ruin, you gratefully become concerned about others who might be lost out on “the sea of life.” You want to help others be rescued from what almost happened to you, and would have happened, except for someone who shined the light on you. So, you have been given light, His light. You shine a little, but it doesn’t seem to reach any who are struggling and resisting. Of course, many will refuse to head for the Light. However, what if the light is too weak or dirty? Out there in the darkness of “life’s sea,” it is just a tiny spark that reveals very little or nothing. Nevertheless, Paul’s inspired reminder, in Philippians 2:15, to the church at Philippi is also meant for us. We function daily in the sea of humanity among whom “….ye shine as lights in the world,” so the Apostle wrote. Where does that leave us? Our light must be clean and unspotted, free from any smudges on the lens. Responding in obedience to God’s Word cleans our lens (our lives) and we shine clearly and brightly. Therefore, remember: “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.” (The hymn: “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning”- By P. P. Bliss). Selah! When we reflect His Light, others come to Him Who is the Light!   Ron
