The Light of The World

The Lord is my light and my salvation...  

Psalm 27:1

Under the picture of the artist Peter Milne, hanging in the church he founded on the little New Hebrides Island of Nguna, these words are found: “When He came, there was no light. When He died, there was no darkness.” When Christ came into the world, there was no light. Matthew, quoting Isaiah, said of Him, “The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned” (Matthew 4:16). Harry Lauder (Scottish artist) once said that during his boyhood, he could tell where the lamplighter was “by the trail of light he left behind him.” Christ was the heavenly Lamplighter. Everywhere He went, the midnight gloom of sin and despair disappeared before Him.

My heart and soul praise You, my risen Redeemer, for the light that pervades the deepest gloom and transforms our lives with Your love. Thank You, for the Light of the world, You own dear Son. Amen.
