Holy to The Lord

Devotional Treasure

Colonel Samuel Brengle 1860-1936

This is an excellent article shared by StopAndPrayTV who like me has a Savation Army history. The subject of holiness is important in the Salvation Army, most Corps (churches) had 3pm Holiness Meetings every Sunday. At these meetings there was much deep teaching on the life of holiness.

Candles for the Lord

Mathew 5:16

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.

Yes you guessed it the regular followers of my blogs, this is another blog about light only this time the song which was written by Joy Webb indicates it is a song of witness and testimony .  I’ve heard many different arrangements From Songsters(Salvation Army Choir) to instrumental videos and I think I can safely say  I like each respectively

How great the darkness, how deep the need!

How vast the problems of indifference, hate and greed;
A world rejecting the truth once known,

And slipping down into a nightmare of its own;
Is there a light that’s strong enough to go,

And metamorphasize the darkness that we know?

I am a candle of the Lord, with truth and love more powerful than sword!
o fan the flame, its single gleam diffuse,

And let my spirit be the light that You can use.
I am the candle of the Lord. Light mel Light me!

How bright the light is from soul to soul:

A myriad tiny flames expanding to a whole,

How strange the truth is when joined as one,
And what a miracle this shining could become;

It could transform the darkness that we know,
And clearly light the way mankind must try to go.
