Let’s Shine A Great Light

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.  (Isaiah 9:2, NIV 1984). 

My Musings – It seems to me that the entire world is “walking in darkness.”  Clearly there have been periods when certain countries could be characterized as “living in the land of the shadow of death” (Hitler’s Germany, Stalin’s Russia, Mao’s China. Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc.), but the darkness is falling on a greater portion of the world than perhaps ever before.  Once considered a “shining city on a hill,” even America has lost a significant portion of its moral fiber.  Would that the “light [would] dawn” and  the people see the “great light” of the Gospel.

My Advice – The Gospel has always been and still remains the world’s only hope.  It is light that extinguishes darkness, not the other way around.  But when we allow our lamps to flicker and go out it seems like the light is being extinguished.  Let’s not let that happen as long as the Church remains in the world.

I was raised in a Christian family and my earliest childhood memories include regular Sunday school and Church attendance as a family. I was taught that our Judeo-Christian values were not just a part of our Sunday routine they should be part of our character and influence all aspects of our lives. I was also taught that as important as these values were they could not save us. We must also be “born again” by accepting Christ.
