In my home, I have a collection of different kinds of lighthouses. I enjoy collecting them. I also like to read and learn more about lighthouses.
Lighthouses have been used all over the world for hundreds of years. People build lighthouses to safely guide ships during storms on the ocean. Sailors can see the bright light from a lighthouse many miles away. Then they can avoid dangerous rocks and come safely into a harbor.
Our Bible Reading today tells us that God is light. We should live in the light. Why? Because if ?we live in the light, we share fellowship with each other. And when we live in the light, the blood (death) of Jesus cleanses us from all sin? (verse 7b).
Lighthouses help people to arrive home safely. In the same way, if we live in God (the light), He will lead us safely to our eternal home with Him.
God wants you to love and follow Him. I hope you are living in His light today.
