A LIGHTHOUSE is a high tower or building; the upper part is called “the lantern.” So let your light shine before men so that through you they may see Christ. Remember that someone is watching, and your example may be the light that sets them on the right path. Look for opportunities to be a light to people and let it shine.
The Apostle Paul is acknowledged as a highly trained theologian. He was tutored by the most renowned teacher of his day, Gamaliel. 1 Paul’s writings often reflect his deep theological background with a level often lost upon untrained readers. In addition, he is reported to have had personal encounters with the Lord, once on the road to Damascus and in Arabia. 2 In his writings, some things can often go right over our heads. He often uses very complex thoughts and theological language, so we can miss what he's saying when we read specific passages. At times we need to look closely to benefit fully from his inspired insights.
