“Ye are the light of the world…” Matthew 5:14

“But the path of the just is as a shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day.” Proverbs 4:18

There is a diminishing factor to every light that is earth bound.
• A match lasts only a few seconds
• A candle lasts only a few hours
• A five year light bulb — perhaps a year.

Amazingly: the only light in this world that does not diminish is the “CHURCH OF THE LORD JESUS CHRIST.”

From the sanctuary today we will preach — it — like — it — is!!!

If I was to select an illustration to prove the point and garner your attention it would he —

THE PERSIAN GULF WAR

At the conclusion of the bitter mid-east slaughter, hun¬dreds of oil wells were set ablaze over the Kuwaiti sand dunes. At night these blazing infernos shed their light over much of the ravished country.

It was a sight!

Can you visualize it?

The tricky business of capping the wells were turned over to world famous, oil well professional fire fighters. They plugged the oil well casings at a rate of one hundreds per day. Still — it took them two years to complete the task.

NOW LISTEN TO THIS:

If the fires were left ablaze, their lights would still go out — IN TIME!

They would shine only so long as the oil energy in the ground held out.

SOONER OR LATER they would diminish and die. It’s called: “The law of diminishing returns.”

And here is something else to think about:

Astronomers tell us that even our sun has used up over half of its hydrogen energy — IT IS A DIMINISHING LIGHT!
