在這彎曲悖謬的世代作神無瑕疵的兒女。你們顯在這世代中,好像明光照耀。(腓215

我們用光照明一切。基督徒必須在他的生活中放光,那麽與他同處多時的人就不會不知道福音了。他的談話應當作光,好叫聽他的人清楚知道他是什麽樣的人,他是服待誰的,幷從他日常的動作上叫人看出他是反映著耶穌的像。光是用以指引人的:我們當幫助那些環繞著我們的正在黑暗中的人,我們要向他們擎起生命的道,我們要把救主指給罪人看,把安息之處指給勞苦和軟弱的人。人們有時讀聖經,但是不能明白;我們必須預備好,像腓利一樣,開導那要明白神的話、救恩的道和屬神的生活的人。

光也用以作爲警號:在有暗礁和浮沙的地方必須設立燈塔。基督徒必須知道世界各處有許多錯誤的光,因此需要正確的光。撒旦破壞人的方法極爲廣泛衆多,它們放出假光,引誘不屬神的人尋樂犯罪;我們珥n在每一個危險的礁石上高舉真光,指出每一種罪,講明那罪要把人領到什麽地步,好叫我們的手在一切人的血上都清潔無分,好在世上作光。光也有悅人的力量:基督徒也有。

基督徒應當是一位安慰者,他的唇上當有和善的話語,他的心中當有同情;他應當在所到之處發光,他應當向他周圍的人散佈快樂。願恩惠的靈住在我心中,使我也能以恩惠待人。願主的生命在我堶惆洇琲爾鳦鈶飢U人、醫治人,使我的說話行事都爲救主基督。

在任何地方當發光

"In the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world." -- Philippians 2:15

We use lights to make manifest. A Christian man should so shine in his life, that a person could not live with him a week without knowing the gospel. His conversation should be such that all who are about him should clearly perceive whose he is, and whom he serves; and should see the image of Jesus reflected in his daily actions. Lights are intended for guidance. We are to help those around us who are in the dark. We are to hold forth to them the Word of life. We are to point sinners to the Saviour, and the weary to a divine resting-place. Men sometimes read their Bibles, and fail to understand them; we should be ready, like Philip, to instruct the inquirer in the meaning of God's Word, the way of salvation, and the life of godliness. Lights are also used for warning. On our rocks and shoals a light-house is sure to be erected. Christian men should know that there are many false lights shown everywhere in the world, and therefore the right light is needed. The wreckers of Satan are always abroad, tempting the ungodly to sin under the name of pleasure; they hoist the wrong light, be it ours to put up the true light upon every dangerous rock, to point out every sin, and tell what it leads to, that so we may be clear of the blood of all men, shining as lights in the world. Lights also have a very cheering influence, and so have Christians. A Christian ought to be a comforter, with kind words on his lips, and sympathy in his heart; he should carry sunshine wherever he goes, and diffuse happiness around him.

Gracious Spirit dwell with me; I myself would gracious be, And with words that help and heal Would thy life in mine reveal, And with actions bold and meek Would for Christ my Saviour speak.
