2nd Day of the Festival of Lights
I am very certain that this is a special season to the
LORD God Almighty, and He proved it to me once again
after I attended the
most moving and reverential
graduation ceremony I have ever witnessed!
was as if we were in a true worship service for the LORD!
ceremony was only for the nursing students, one of
which was my lovely daughter. It
ended with the graduating
students standing facing the audience in a darkened auditorium, while they held a
candle that one of their instructors had just lit for them, as we were listening
to the most beautiful song entitled, “Go
Light Your World,” by Chris Rice.
That song exemplifies the
True Light and what this ministry is all about,
and that event I had the honor and privilege of attending yesterday was made
even more memorable for me since it was the first day of the Festival of Lights,
Feast of Dedication.
(See John 10:22-23.)
Sadly, so many Christians are holding a candle without a flame, but they
truly believe they are
walking with God. The Enemy would like us to believe that Jesus just "moved into
the neighborhood" when He
came to this earth some 2000 years ago, as Mr. Peterson claims in his "message," but
that wondrous event is much
more than any of us can truly fathom!
Jesus was only a visitor in this world, and He
never called it His home. He came for one purpose, and now it is our
responsibility (those who follow Christ) to share His message with a lost and
dying world. And
it is only
by "the preaching of the cross" that
God will give us power to make a genuine and eternal difference in the lives of others!
I hope and pray that God will send forth His laborers into the
harvest to give hope to "the hopeless, confused, and torn;" comfort to "the lonely,
tired, and worn;" and help to "the helpless, deceived, and poor!"
May the Spirit of Christ send His fire to ignite
your candle for all to see, so God can use you as a beacon to carry His
Light "in darkest times!" And then you can "Take your candle and go light your
I Am come to send fire on the earth; and what
if it be already kindled? Luke 12:49
