God’s Word is a Lighthouse

Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.  –Psalm 119

This hymn, Oh, Sinner Man–a Caribbean spiritual, here transplanted to northern British waters–is a warning. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Repent now, and take Christ’s hand, stretched out for our salvation.

Take a moment to think about this video. Why are there so many lighthouses?

Because they’re needed! These waters are very, very dangerous–tricky currents, barely submerged rocks with sharp teeth, and cold enough to kill you in minutes if you fall in.

God’s Word is a lighthouse. It will keep us from the rocks, it will safely guide our course and bring us home, if we humble ourselves to follow it.
