While preaching in Soul’s Harbor, Columbus, Ohio, I noticed a nurse under deep conviction of sin. She sat night after night the picture of dejection and distress.
One night she yielded to Christ. The burden of sin fell from her heart. She became radiant.
On the way home that night, she stopped at a store to do some shopping. A clerk who had known her for some time said, “Why, you look as if someone had just lighted a candle inside you!”
“That’s right,” said the converted nurse.
“What I mean,” said the clerk, “is that you look as if you had just fallen in love!”
“I have fallen in love with the One who loved me when I didn’t love Him — Jesus!”
…but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light. (Ephesians 5:8)
