WHY THE NAME LAMP POSTS?
In Matthew 5-7 what is known as the beatitudes, Jesus said to His disciples, you are a city on a Hill that cannot be hidden, a lamp that is placed on a table or lamp stand that gives light to everyone in the house. No one lights a lamp and hides it under a basket, but we show our good deeds so people can see that God is working in us and they give Him the credit.
We see lamp posts everywhere; at every store, school, workplace, and neighborhood. We are those Lamp Posts in our cities, schools, jobs and homes, bringing light to all who are around. Where there is no light, the darkness overcomes.
