Be A Beacon Of Light In The Firmament Of Darkness
If you are out in the open seas at night, you will not be able to see anything except what the light of your boat cast upon. This is very dangerous especially if you are near
an island or an atoll since the shallow reefs can puncture your boat and you will sink. But one solitary harbor light gives light and illuminates the surrounding area of an island giving warning and directions to voyagers. That is also true in the spiritual world. Amidst the pervading darkness and evil in this world, one solitary soul who lives to please God and gives glory to His name is like a shining beacon of light that illuminates the darkened world and gives direction to lost souls. As the saying goes, "it is better to light a single candle than to curse the whole darkness." To a lost and darkened world where many fall down and are tripped by misleading pseudo lights and attractions, a single shining beacon of light pointing to the Gospel of salvation by Christ can save so many perishing souls. Nine out of ten people in the world comfort themselves by adhering to the established norms of morality thinking that numbers alone will assure them of approval by God. But God never looks at numbers. He looks solely at the heart to see the motives of men. And His standards never change since the day of creation to the final days of this world. Never compromise with the world. Never surrender your principles and scruples in life. It is better to be persecuted in this world for doing what is right in God's sight than be a part of the wholesale disregard of God's laws and principles by men. BE A BEACON OF LIGHT IN THE FIRMAMENT OF DARKNESS IN THIS WORLD.
