Dec 15 – The Lighthouse in the Desert

The Atlantic Provinces are known for their many lighthouses, which in times past warned mariners of dangerous rocky areas. But surprisingly, there is a lighthouse in the middle of the Arizona Desert. There is no water to be found for 30 miles around. This lighthouse does not give a warning, but an invitation, because beside this lighthouse is a well of cool thirst quenching water. And I am reminded that Jesus Christ, Who said, “I am the light of the world, “ also gives an open invitation to all in this thirsty old world. John wrote in his gospel, “Jesus stood and cried out, if anyone is thirsty, let him come to me and drink.” If you have been trying to get satisfaction by drinking at the world’s empty fountains and have found that your thirst is never quenched by money, success or pleasure, I invite you to heed Jesus’ invitation and come to Him. Millions have found that He alone can satisfy the longings of our hearts.
