Keep The Light On

The lamp of God had not yet gone out…

And it never was supposed to. By God’s own command, it was to perpetually shine and bring light to the Holy Place in the Tabernacle. The priest on duty must regularly trim the wick and keep the oil filled.

But Eli was almost blind. He rarely heard from the Lord. He failed to trim the wicks, and so his sons ran wild. The oil was burning out and there was no one to fill it. 

We are the priesthood of believers. We bring light to those around us. 

It’s so easy to get caught up in so many other things. And we neglect our spiritual care. Like Eli, we begin to lose our sight, we rarely hear from the Lord, and our light starts to dim.

Take time to tend to your lamp today and keep the light on.

  1. A very important message. It is our mission as Christ followers to be a city on a hill, drawing others to the hope of Jesus. But if we neglect our spiritual growth, we don’t look any different than the rest of the dark, hopeless world.
