A figurative lamp works similar to the eye for the body. If your heart has accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior then your body is full of light. God’s word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our paths. Our lamps can be snuffed out, for whoever curses his father or mother, his lamp will be put out in deep darkness.

You will do well to heed the prophetic word that a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts can be nothing other than Jesus Christ.
