A Light-Matter (of Grave Import)

Below is a story of someone who came to
our very stomping grounds centuries ago to
light the world!
His commitment challenges us to a 
hold our own lights a little higher!!

From this Book-

Sometimes when those we dearly love devastate us with blatantly, 
unrepentant, sinful choices
it makes us examine how or if we have been lighting the world
or hiding it under a bushel of busyness, selfishness and distraction!

Go light your world
And fight love’s war
With kind humility
This is the day
Made by the Lord
Then lent to you and me

Go, light your world
With truth and grace
Of God’s unchanging Word
For who knows who
Is next to face
Death’s sickle undeterred

Pray for faith’s
Saving miracle
Where the drum-roll of doom
Is drowned out by
Hell’s carnival
While Judgment’s verdicts loom

A spark pierces
The deepest night
Then lift your Beacon high
For who knows who
Will see the light
That readies them to die
Go light your world
Proceed with prayer
And confidence in this;
No matter who, what,
When or where
God keeps his promises

Matt. 5:14-16
“You are the light of the world. 
A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 
Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, 
but on a lampstand, 
and it gives light to all who are in the house.
 Let your light so shine before men, 
that they may see your good works 
and glorify your Father in heaven.
