My Dear brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. The blessed word that the Lord has given for you today is from the book of Isaiah 60:5, “Then you shall see and become radiant, And your heart shall swell with joy; Because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you. The wealth of the Gentiles shall come to you.”
God wants to make your life radiant. Therefore You must not be lukewarm. There are some who are neither cold nor hot. God does not want His children to live a half hearted lifestyle. There is a plan and purpose for your life on this Earth. You have been called to fulfill that plan and purpose. You have to set a goal in life and strive to achieve it. The Lord will make you radiant and change your heart that is weary and sorrowful. You need to rise and shine for the Lord because Your light that reveals the way to Christ is here.
While Jesus walked on the face of this earth along with His disciples, He spoke to the People saying, “I am the light of the world, whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness.” If not darkness will cover the people. Isaiah admonishes the people to arise and shine and not to grope in darkness. Isaiah the prophet actually focuses the attention of the people to seek the glorious light of God’s kingdom. For those in Christ are no more in the dark. This is the assurance that God gives to His children. Because the light has come upon them. The True Light “Jesus” is risen upon the people of God.
Until Jesus comes into your life, you seem to live in darkness, you may live a life displeasing to God. There is a great difference in the life of a believer and the unbeliever. When a believer walks in the ways of the Lord, he humbles himself before God and obeys the commandment of God then the glory of God will be seen upon them. The Lord will arise over you only if your ways are right in the presence of God. God will exalt you in life such that others will have respect for you. And the wealth of the unbelievers will be inherited by you. The Bible says that the wealth of the sinners is stored up for the righteous.
My Dear Brothers and Sisters there is no greater Light besides Jesus. Either you live for Jesus or remain in darkness. Its either life or death. Choose this day whom you shall serve. Satan keeps most people in spiritual darkness. The Bible says, Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the gospel of Christ who is the true image of God, May the Lord enable you to see the true Light and enjoy the glory of Christ. God bless you.
Prayer: Our loving heavenly Father, we thank You for this blessed day. Lord give us knowledge and the insight to know You better. To walk in the Light and not in darkness. Remove all negative thoughts from our mind, and help us to acquire positive nature that would lead to light. May we inherit the wealth of the unbelievers. May the True Light shine upon us. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
