The Word refers to The Bible, God’s commandments, His ethics and His prescriptions for your life.
In this C.H.E. Sadaphal sermon, learn exactly what Psalm 119:105 means when it says, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
First, the Word brings light. The text tells us that The Word is a lamp and a light: illumination to the feet tells you where you are and illumination to your path tells you where you’re going. Yet, how can inanimate words on pages produce something such as light that is life giving? The answer is that The Word is never and end in and of itself. It is witness to The Light, Who is Jesus.
The Word brings light and the light casts shadows. Once you step into the light, invariably it casts shadows. The shadows look just like you and follow your every move. And, depending on how high or low the light is that’s guiding you, your shadow may even appear bigger than you are. The good news is that as long as you follow The Light, you will end up in the arms of a loving God Who has already paid the price for your shadows.
The Word brings light and light has the most value in the darkness. The call on Christians everywhere is to venture out into the world and let our lights shine. Light has no value in the light, but even a small flicker means much to a world consumed in darkness.
