Light of the world

It is imperative to note that light is the brightness given by the sun, a flame, a lamp, etc. that makes vision possible. Light is used in connection with joy, blessing and life in contrast to sorrow, adversity and death. The holiness of God is expressed in terms of light. God’s people are thus children of light called to reflect His light in the world. If immorality prevails in the land, the fault is ours in a great degree. If there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it.
If the Church is degenerated and worldly, the pulpit is responsible for it. If public press lacks moral discrimination, the pulpit is responsible for it. If the world loses interest in religion; if Satan rules in our halls of legislation, the pulpit is responsible for it. Let us lay this fact to heart and be thoroughly awake to our responsibility in respect to morals of this nation. This is not only to preachers, but every editor of a religious paper, every church officer, every Sunday school teacher, every Christian worker, and every individual Christian has a degree of influence that he is responsible to use for the glory of God and the salvation of souls. It is my prayer that the Lord’s light will shine in all dark areas of our lives.
