THE LIGHTHOUSE OF LOVE
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
John 8:12 KJV

Philip Paul Bliss wrote a beautiful and inspiring hymn about Jesus “The Light of The World is Jesus”. “No darkness have we Who in Jesus abide; The Light of the world is Jesus! We walk in the light When we follow our Guide! The Light of the world is Jesus!” Thank God for our Lighthouse of Love.
It can be dark and storming outside but if we have invited Jesus into our heart to be our personal Saviour, our heart is filled with the light of Jesus. Rev. Henry Jeffreys Zelley wrote another hymn about Jesus being our Light “Heavenly Sunlight”. I love this hymn. It is one of my favorite hymns to sing.

Heavenly Father, You are a loving Father and I love You. Thank You for giving Jesus to us to be our Light of love. Jesus, thank You for never leaving me and for being my Light and Guide through the darkness of life. In Jesus’ Name, I pray. Amen.
