Let the Son Shine In!

sunrise-04There’s just something about opening the window blinds and letting the morning sun shine in. We frame beautiful pictures of brilliant sunrises over the ocean.  We bask in it. Plants cannot live without it. It lifts our moods and gives us hope. My mother used to say the sun was “life-giving”.  Medical science now agrees that sunlight helps cure depression and provides Vitamin D which strengthens our bones and immune system!  And now they are telling us that slathering on sunscreen, blocking the sun’s rays, may actually CAUSE skin cancer rather than protect against it.  Hmmm…

The Bible tells us that in the New Jerusalem, “The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.” (Rev. 21:23) “I saw a light from heaven, brighter than the sun, shining around me and those who journeyed with me.” (Acts 26:13) “His face shone like the sun, and His clothes became as white as the light.” (Matt. 17:2) “The sun shall no longer be your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light, and your God your glory. Your sun shall no longer go down, nor shall your moon withdraw itself; for the Lord will be your everlasting light, and the days of your mourning shall be ended.” (Is. 60:19-20)

Feel like darkness has surrounded you? Are you tired of all the gloomy, rainy days?  (At the time of this writing, it has rained every day for over two weeks now.)  Look to Jesus – He truly is the “Light of the World”.  (John 8:12)  In Him, your future is looking brighter than ever!  Hallelujah!
