THE HARBOUR LIGHT--The open waters of the world provide wide roads for ships, and all have one place in common--the harbour. A sheltered body of water, the harbour provides protection to vessels in times of bad weather, and a calm port for rest and repairs. What a beautiful sight to the seaman who has spend hours, days and weeks without land in view! The harbour well represents home, safety, wages, happiness and love.
The harbour is always approached very carefully. Some harbours are so treacherous that the slightest mistake could be costly. Some channels are shallow and narrow, and turn very quickly, so one must be alert until the very end of the voyage.
Entering the harbour at night demands even more caution. The observance of the harbour lights is a must. These lights are sometimes a series of beacons or buoys showing a channeled area. The light could also come from a lighthouse that gives direction to the harbour from miles away. Using the harbour lights for guidance is essential for boatmen to safely enter port at night.
My friend, the days and times we live in are very dark and stormy. Heaven is God's harbour of peace and safety. Do you expect to enter there? If so you must line up with God's Harbour Light, His Son Jesus Christ. He is the only way into safe Harbour. John 14:6 "Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.” Jesus also said, "...I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life" (John 8:12).
Jesus is the only One who can provide the light needed to guide you over the dangerous, darkened waves of life and into the harbour of peaceful rest. If you reject or neglect the light of God coming from the Saviour, you will suffer shipwreck, loss, and eternal death.
The Harbour Light is shining your way. Enter God's safe haven of rest today! Psalm 107:28-30, "Then they cry unto the LORD in their trouble, and he bringeth them out of their distresses. He maketh the storm a calm, so that the waves thereof are still. Then are they glad because they be quiet; so he bringeth them unto their desired haven."
