God’s light is our light.
As we continue through the season of Advent, today’s devotion is based on Isaiah 49:6, “I will make you (The nation of Israel) as a light for the nations, that My salvation may reach to the end of the earth.”
A person is never finished with God’s Word after reading it once. There is much more to it than anyone can see with one reading. When God spoke through Isaiah 30 centuries ago, he spoke to all who read his Word. What he said to Israel, God chosen people speaks of Jesus Christ too. It also speaks about and for the Christian Church.
God’s salvation has happened. Whether a person chooses to believe it or not, it is a historical fact. God sent Christ to us, not just as a great teacher and example but as our Redeemer and Savior. That is why we celebrate his birth and look forward to Christ’s coming again on Judgment Day. Come, Lord Jesus, come quickly.
Please pray with me; Heavenly Father, thank you for including me as one of your chosen people. I pray to you for the grace to live as a light that shows all I come into contact with today, your light, the light of love and forgiveness. In Jesus’ blessed name, I pray. Amen.
