Sunday visited Lima in February, 1911. He stayed for 6 weeks, building a wooden tabernacle just across the river from where the new YMCA sits. During that dreary winter stretch, over 5700 people decided to follow Jesus because of his preaching. Perhaps you know someone who was changed because of Sunday. Maybe your Grandma or your Uncle attended a service and gave her or his life to Christ. Billy Sunday made an impact wherever he went, because he followed God’s leading.
Do you know what he said L.I.M.A. stood for?
My friend Bill told us while we were praying
‘Lighthouse for Middle America.’
What does a lighthouse do? It guides ships safely to the shore. It gives direction for where the captain needs to go. It assures weary travelers that home is close by. It tells anyone within sight, that they are not alone.
One century has passed since Sunday called Lima a lighthouse.
Maybe now is the time he was speaking about. Perhaps now is the time that Lima truly is a lighthouse. Let’s guide people to their Captain and assure weary travelers on the road of life that they are not alone.
Let’s show them Jesus who so boldly proclaimed, ““I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12)
WTLW exists to call unbelievers to Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, to edify believers in the faith and motivate them to obey the teachings of Christ and to affect a Christian influence on our society through a well-rounded selection of programs.
