Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Keepers and Followers of The Light”
Text: Numbers 8:2
“Speak to Aaron, and say to him, ‘When you arrange the lamps, the seven lamps shall give light in front of the lampstand.’ ”
“Keepers and Followers of The Light,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
A Lamp stand by itself cannot give light without a Lamp set in front of it! The Lampstand had 7 lamps arranged so that they would give light in front of it:
“You shall make seven lamps for it, and they shall arrange its lamps so that they give light in front of it.” (Exod.25:37).
The number 7 is a biblical type meaning “whole and complete, perfect.” These lamps were a type of “Whole, Complete, and Perfect Light; that is Jesus Christ Himself.
Aaron was to be the Keeper and Follower of The Light.
The Keeper makes sure the lamps are full of oil so that the light stays burning brightly at all times.
The Follower keeps their Eye and their heart on the Light that shows them the pathway of righteousness.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet
And a light to my path.” (Psa.119:105).
So, Warriors are the Keepers and Followers of the Light.
You and I are the “lamps” that Our Commander Jesus, the True Light, Lights Up! (John 1:6-9).
We keep our “lamp” full of the oil of Holy Spirit by maintaining daily communion with Him. We are continually being filled with the Holy Spirit (Eph.5:18), as we remain sensitive to Him in our daily life; listening for Him and Obeying His instructions.
We’re also Followers of the Light as You and I “Do Life Together With Jesus, The True Light of the World!”
“But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.”(1John 1:7).
By Keeping His Light burning in the power of Holy Spirit and Following His Light, as a lamp to my feet and a light to my path; we Are Showing The light of the World THROUGH The Lamp of our Life (Matt.5:14-16).
Warriors are Keepers and Followers of The Light; so that all may see Christ in you and I, the Hope of Glory - and by Seeing Him in you and I may come to Know Him as their Lord and Savior! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side!
