Our Reasonable Response to God’s Love: Becoming a Lighthouse
God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all. (1 John 1: 5) Jesus is also light. He said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” If we walk in the light, as He is in the light; we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son purifies us from all sin. (1 John 1:7) Light represents what is good, true, and holy, while darkness represents what is evil and false. (John 3:19 – 21)
According to Webster, a lighthouse is a tall structure topped by a powerful light used as a signal or beacon to aid marine navigation. It shows the way and warns of danger. Symbolically, our Father is a lighthouse. We, as Christians, are called on to be a beacon or lighthouse reflecting God’s light. Then we, too, become the light of the world and others can see the way to eternal life through Jesus Christ.
Our appropriate response to God’s love and His Light is reflected in words of the song “Let the Lower Lights Be Burning” by Phillip P. Bliss as shown below. Adjacent to the song is a photograph of painting of the lighthouse by Ms. Emma Dixon.

Brightly beams our Father’s mercy
