"Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an 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 5:14-16)
At 11.37 pm, Friendship 7 passed over Perth at more than 28,000km/h- more than 6.4km for every beat of Lt-Col Glenn's heart. At Muchea, Colonel Cooper suggested to astronaut Glenn, look for the light show in his honor. "That's affirmative," Lt-Col Glenn radioed back. "Just to my right I can see a big pattern of lights, apparently right on the coast. I can see the outline of a town and a very bright light just to the south of it." Colonel Cooper: "That's Perth and Rockingham you're seeing there." Glenn: "The lights show up very well and thank everybody for turning them on will you."
Jesus said that we must let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify our Father which is in heaven" (Matthew 5: 16). Jesus said that we are a lights and that we are as a city sat on a hill that cannot be hid. So we must shine. You may be thinking its just me; we are just a little church; I'm the only one; we are only a few. Well, let me encourage you, turn on the light because somebody is trying to find their way home. It's dark out there and someone is trying to stay on course. Because little Perth's, Australia turned on their lights, today the city is nicknamed "City of Lights." Why not be like Motel 6 and leave the lights on.
Sing: There's a country far beyond the starry sky, there's a city where there never comes a night, if we're faithful. we shall go there by and by, tis the city where the Lamb is the light.
Chorus:In the city where the Lamb is the light, in the city where there cometh no night, I've a mansion over there, that is free from toil and care, I am going where the Lamb is the light.
