Christ the Light
Read Judges 1:1 through 3:30; Luke 1:67 through 2:7
The sun is a powerhouse, a gift from God full of countless benefits for humanity. The sun holds the planets in their orbits and makes life on earth possible. It shapes the seasons and causes all things to grow. It can heal our sadness and help us produce needed vitamins. It destroys darkness, reveals things hidden in the night, and enables people to see the beauty of nature.
“Because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven” (Luke 1:78).
Some scholars believe that the “rising sun” referred to here by Zechariah is Jesus. Malachi 4:2, spoken four hundred years before Jesus was born, promised that “the sun of righteousness” would “rise with healing in its rays.” Now, humanity sees the fulfillment of that promise, the Lord Jesus Christ. He came to heal people, to open their eyes, to free them from their darkness, and to guide them through life. And all because of the tender mercy of our great God!
Prayer for Today: God, thank You for sending Jesus to be light in my darkness!
