Now are ye light in the Lord. — Eph 5:8
We are able to walk in this world as children of light. Light stands for all that is beautiful, true, right, and good. Darkness is the emblem of all that is wrong, evil, unbeautiful, unholy.
As Christians we belong to the kingdom of light. We should so live that our lives shall always give out light. We are the light of the world. We are to make life brighter for others. We are to live so as to make the way plain to some who do not know where to go or what to do.
It would be very sad if any persons in darkness should look to us to learn how to live, and find our light not shining. If the light in a lighthouse were to go out some night, ships might be wrecked. If our light fails to shine even for a little while, we know not who might perish in the darkness.
We are all children of light, and dare never to have our lamp grow dim.
