A LESSON FROM A CANDLE


Look at a candle and how it burns. The more the light shines, the more the candle diminishes. What a beautiful illustration of the believer in Christ! The more he learns the Gospel of Christ, the more precious Christ becomes, and the less he thinks of himself. One who is truly the Lord's shines forth the light of HIS righteousness, grace, goodness, mercy, forgiveness and truth. In so shining, self does not get bigger and more noticeable, Christ does! The glory is not to self but to HIM! John the Baptist said, "He must increase, I must decrease." (John 3:30)
