This chapter is like a great shout of “Hallelujah! Emmanuel has come to us!” The Light has dawned. Jerusalem Above in all her glory is unveiled in that light. Read John 1:4,5.
* Dear Lord God, please write Your word on our hearts today.
“The sun shall be no more your light by day, nor for brightness shall the moon give you light; but the LORD will be your everlasting light, and your God will be your glory.”
God is light.
We see this clearly in today’s passage.
The apostle John expands with the idea of walking in God’s light, from 1 John 1,
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin.”
God is light. God dwells in light. And we can choose to walk in God’s light, or not.
In Revelation 21 the apostle John, in that amazing vision given to him, sees the revealing of God’s word to Isaiah to be for us in glory,
“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.”
God is light. God dwells in light. God’s glory generates the light.
This is our God!
* Father In Heaven,
God of light,
Thank You for bringing us from darkness into light.
Thank You for this promise to us that we see here, the new Jerusalem, that heavenly city, where there is no need of sun or moon for You are our light!
Please help us to walk in Your light today, reflecting to those around us.
