Keeper of the flame

You are the light of the world – like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. Matt. 5:14

Jesus calls Himself the light of the world, too. It is through His followers, His church, that Jesus chose to keep shining His light on the world. From our very public hilltop the church has botched being light  – usually because we’ve tried to imitate His light or start the fire ourselves. Jesus is the keeper of the flame and won’t let His light be hidden or His reflection be distorted. When He reignites the fires and polishes the mirrors it’s been called revival, awakening, even revolution.

Lord, be the origin of all light that is visible from Your church.
