Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. -Isaiah 60:1
The Light has come for you. As the sun rises each morning, it is a chance for a new creation, a fresh promise, a bright future ahead. The Message translation says it this way: Wake up. Put your face in the sunlight. God’s bright glory has risen for you. The whole earth is wrapped in darkness, all people sunk in deep darkness, but God rises on you, His sunrise glory breaks over you. Nations will come to your light, kings to your sunburst brightness.
You are chosen to carry the light. To illuminate the way, and light the darkness. So rise and shine – it is your day!
