Tony and I travelled to Cape Agulas, the southern tip of Africa on Family Day (Easter Monday) this year. This trip took us a one and a half hour drive through Robertson, Bonnievale, Stormsvlei and Bredesdorp to the lighthouse.
I wanted to be at the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian Oceans, and even stood at the boundary, with one foot on one side and one foot on the other (you can find this on the Copple-blog page). So almost a month later, I saw an impression during a time of worship at Worcester Christian Church. The lighthouse in my vision had bright beams. Instead of just the light, the lighthouse was singing praises to the Father.
In front of the lighthouse, was the ocean - the meeting point of the Atlantic and Indian oceans. Just as the two oceans meet at Cape Agulhas, so brothers and sisters in Christ meeting in love and worship converge together into one. We were praising Father, Son and Holy Spirit together. Jesus sees us all as the church. Don't get stuck on our differences. Jesus is the light of the world, and through him, we reflect this light when we worship together. Do not fear the darkness, because Jesus has overcome. Go and be light to the world.
Here's Rend Collective's "My Lighthouse," which shows the beauty of Jesus' light perfectly.
