Dear Brothers and Sisters,
What a wonderful reminder that our Lord Jesus Christ is the light of this world, and is the light we have in our hearts for others to see.
In John 8:12 we read, “Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
In Revelation 21:23 we read about Heaven, “And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb.”
Charles Spurgeon’s Morning by Morning devotional has the following on how are going to be in Heaven, “God’s people are a hidden people, but when Christ receives His people into heaven, He will touch them with the wand of His own love, and change them into the image of His manifested glory. They were poor and wretched, but what a transformation! They were stained with sin, but one touch of His finger, and they are bright as the sun, and clear as crystal. Oh! what a manifestation! All this proceeds from the exalted Lamb. Whatever there may be of effulgent splendour, Jesus shall be the centre and soul of it all. Oh! to be present and to see Him in His own light, the King of kings, and Lord of lords!

Prayer, Oh Dear Lord, what wonderful hope we have in You! Thank You for choosing us and saving us, even though we do not deserve it, so that we can spend eternity glorifying You, the King of kings, and Lord of lords! Thank You for being the Light of this dark world and the only hope that we can truly trust. Help us to keep our eyes always on You, our SAVIOR, Amen
