Light a Lamp

“Or what woman, having ten silver coins, if she loses one coin, does not light a lamp, sweep the house, and search carefully until she finds it? And when she has found it, she calls her friends and neighbors together, saying, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found the piece which I lost!’ Likewise, I say to you, there is joy in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents.” – Luke 15:8-10 (The Parable of the Lost Coin)

The word of God is repeatedly compared to a light and a lamp (Psa. 119:107, 2 Pet. 1:19, Prov. 6:23).

This woman lost a coin, what’s the first thing she does? Light a lamp. What’s the lamp do? Helps her see. Without it, she would just be fumbling around in the dark.

When we are lost or need to find something; step #1? LIGHT A LAMP i.e. consult The Bible!

Without it, we are just fumbling around in the dark.

Find Jesus, Find Life

“For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the Lord; But he who sins against me wrongs his own soul; All those who hate me love death.” – Prov. 8:35-36

This is Wisdom personified, which is to say – Jesus, who said He was the Truth, the Way, and the Life (John 14:6).

Find wisdom, find life. Find Jesus, find life.

Hate wisdom, love death. Hate Jesus, love death.

Desire the Pure Milk of the Word

“as newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby,.” – 1 Pet. 2:2

Crave the pure, uncontaminated milk of God’s Word.

Desire God’s word like a newborn baby who cannot survive without his or her mother’s milk.

The word is our precious life source.

Are you thirsty?

Are you dehydrated?

Work Is It’s Own Reward

“Nothing is better for a man than that he should eat and drink, and that his soul should enjoy good in his labor. This also, I saw, was from the hand of God.” – Ecclesiastes 2:22-24

Anyone who has come home nice and worn out can attest: there is no sweeter slumber than rest after a good day’s work.

Work is a reward straight from the hand of God.
