Daily Service: Light the Darkness

Updated for volume 14

John 1:4-5 NKJV In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.

In World War 1 there was a saying “third man on a match is bad luck”. You see snipers could see the glow of a match a mile away. By the time the third guy lit up, bang! He is dead.

Darkness cannot extinguish, cannot hide the light.  A lit match in the darkness can be seen a mile away.  A single candle (you) can light up a dark world that you walk in every day.  Your testimony, as well as knowing more from the Word consistently is an inextinguishable force that Satan cannot withstand.

This is a chorus from a song that Avalon did for their Christmas album, but I love the picture this evokes in my mind:


“Light A Candle”

Light a candle
For the old man who sits staring
Out a frosty windowpane

Light a candle
For the woman who is lonely
And every Christmas is the same

For the children who need
More than presents can bring

Light a candle, light the dark
Light the world, light a heart or two
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

Light a candle
For the homeless and the hungry
A little shelter from the cold

Light a candle
For the broken and forgotten
May the season warm their souls

Can we open our hearts
To shine through the dark?

Light a candle, light the dark
Light the world, light a heart or two
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

Ooh and in this special time of year
May peace on earth surround us here
And teach us there’s a better way to live

Oh, and with every flame that burns
We must somehow learn
That love’s the greatest gift
That we could ever give

Light a candle, light the dark
Light the world
(Light a heart or two)
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

Light a candle, light the dark
Light the world
(Light a heart or two)
Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you

Light a candle for me
I’ll light a candle for you
(Light a candle for me)
Oh, I’ll light a candle for you
