“We have even greater confidence in the message proclaimed by the prophets. You must pay close attention to what they wrote, for their words are like a lamp shining in a dark place—until the Day dawns, and Christ the Morning Star shines in your hearts.”
(2 Peter 1:19 NLT)

I had an opportunity to visit a historic lighthouse. As I ascended the spiral staircase to the top I was amazed at the spectacular view and wondered just how many ships were saved from disaster throughout the decades. The lighthouse is a tower that shines a very bright warning light for the guidance of ships to avoid dangerous areas. God’s Holy Word is like the lighthouse. If we pay close attention to what the Bible says we can steer our lives away from the sharp rocks of sinful behaviors which shipwreck our souls to eternal death separated from God forever. Jesus is the Light of the world and his light shines into our hearts like a bright morning star saving us from the darkness of our sins.
