A Light is shining....

“Hurry, bring the flashlight!” I remember those words growing up when the electricity went out. Many people believe that the light is going out on our civilization. The darkness of violence, war, disease, natural disasters of all kinds seems to be spreading over our world. The darkness in human hearts is growing as addictions, hate, injustice, poverty, human misery created by greed over take us. Turn on the flashlight, we scream. The prophet, Isaiah, understood the need for a light in darkness;

“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1)

Many followers of Jesus understand this refers to the Messianic hope fulfilled by Jesus who said, “I am the light of the world.” Wait there is more here. Didn’t Jesus say, “You are the light of the world”? When you receive the Light of the world, you become the light of the world. Seeing to much darkness? Let life shine! – Ron Friesen
