Today's Passage: Isaiah 60:1-5
I love the use of light and darkness throughout the Bible.
Verses 1 and 2 in this passage read: "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you." The light to come is the glory of God revealed in us!
Today is such a sunny day, and it is absolutely beautiful! And to think, all of this is only a glimpse of what is to come.. The light and the glory of God that will be revealed one day.
Verse 4 says "Lift up your eyes all around, and see" See what? Verse 5 answers, "Then you shall see and be radiant".
So let's keep our eyes on Jesus, see his light, reveal his light, and we too shall be radiant! What a good reminder to look around and see God's glory being revealed, and to fix our eyes on Jesus, especially in this advent season.
"Into marvelous light I'm running, out of darkness, out of shame. By the cross you are the truth, You are the life, you are the way." -Marvelous Light (song)
