Then answer the higher calling of Christ for the Gospel sake today.
One Night During A Blackout, When I Fumble To The Closet For A Candle
As I Turn To Leave With The Large Candle In My Hand, I Heard A Voice Say,
“Now Hold It Right There”
“Who Said That?” I Replied. “I Did.” I Realized That The Voice Was Coming From My Hand.
Repeatedly I Asked, “Who Are You? What Are You?” “I Am A Candle”, The Voice Said.
I Lifted Up The Candle To Take A Closer Look. There Was A Tiny Face In The Wax.
Again The Candle Said, “Don’t Take Me Out Of Here” “What?”
“I Said, Don’t Take Me Out Of This Room.”
“What Do You Mean? I Have To Take You Out. You’re A Candle And Your Job Is To Give Light.”
“It’s Dark Out There; You Can’t Take Me Out. I’m Not Ready.”
The Candle Explained With Pleading Eyes, “I Need More Preparation.”
I Couldn’t Believe My Ears. More Preparation? “Yeah, I’ve Decided That I Need To Research This Job Of Light-Giving So That I Don’t Make Any Mistakes. You’d Be Surprised How Distorted The Glow Of An Untrained Candle Can Be…”
“All Right,” I Said. “You’re Not The Only Candle On The Shelf, I’ll Blow You Out And Take One Of The Other Candles!”
I Heard The Other Candles Reply, “We Aren’t Going Either!”
I Turned To The Other Candles, And Said, “You Are Candles, And Your Job Is To Light Dark Places!”
“Well, That May Be What You Think,” Said The First Candle, “You May Think We
Have To Go, But I’m Busy…I’m Meditating On The Importance Of Light. It’s Really Enlightening”…
“What About The Two Of You, Are You Going To Stay Too?”
A Short, Fat Purple Candle With Plum Cheeks Spoke Up And Said,
“I’m Waiting To Get My Life Together, I’m Not Stable Enough.”
A Female Candle With A Very Pleasant Voice Said, “I’d Like To Help,” She Explained, “But Lighting The Darkness Is Not My Gift…I’m A Singer. I Sing To Other Candles To Encourage Them To Burn More Brightly.”
She Began A Rendition Of “This Little Light Of Mine” The Other Three Joined In, Filling The Closet With Singing…I Took A Step Back And Considered The Absurdity Of It All. Four Perfectly Healthy Candles Singing To Each Other About Light But Refusing To Come Out Of The Closet.
Here Is A Question For You, When Was The Last Time You Share The Gospel With Someone?
This World Is Full Of Darkness, With Many People Stumbling Around Trying To Find Their Way.
You Can Be A Light To Them, And Believe Me, There’s A Light Waiting For You.
It Can All Happen With Something As Simple As Sharing The Faith, Smiling Across The
Room, Or Saying A Quick Hello To A Forgotten Friend.
“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. LET YOUR LIGHT SO SHINE BEFORE MEN THAT THEY MAY SEE YOUR GOOD WORKS, AND GLORIFY YOUR FATHER WHICH IS IN HEAVEN.” Matthew 5:14-15.
