    The Sun of Righteousness With Healing in His Wings
    But for you who fear my name, the sun of righteousness shall rise with healing in its wings. You shall go out leaping like calves from the stall. Malachi 4:2   Hail! the heaven-born Prince of peace!  Hail! the Son of Righteousness!  Light and life to all he brings,  Risen with healing in his wings   Charles Wesley wrote those lyrics to one of our beloved Christmas hymns, Hark! the Herald Angels Sing. It's obvious he had Malachi 4:2 in mind when he wrote that particular stanza. And when we

    Light and Life
    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." John 8:12  Maybe you've noticed how plants tend to grow towards the sunlight.   It's an interesting phenomenon. But it makes perfect sense. Light brings life to plants.  They need the light, so they grow towards the light. But it's not only plants that receive life from light. Think about what the world would be like without light.

Walk as children of light (for the fruit of light is found in all that is good and right and true), and try to discern what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:6-10 The contrast between light and darkness is all over the place.   Literature.  Art.  Music.

    The Miracle of Light Shining in the Dark
    For God, who said, "Let light shine out of darkness," has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.  2 Corinthians 4:6 Imagine someone built a time machine (that actually works).  With this time machine we could travel anywhere in history.  And let's just say that we travel back in time to the very first day of creation. What do you think it would be like to hear God say, "Let there be light!" and then see light shining in the

    Light in the Darkness
    The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. John 1:5 I preached a sermon yesterday on how citizens of the kingdom of Christ are the light of the world.  I tried to impress upon our minds and hearts that it is truly an honor to be labeled with the same designation Jesus called himself.   Only Jesus can be called the light of the world in the most ultimate sense.  We are the light of the world simply because of his grace to us.  We reflect what he is. As I think
