Give light

God’s glory will light the earth with a brightness never seen.  No sunrise has ever illuminated the sky like Jesus will one day do.  The Creator’s majesty overwhelms our souls with His presence, and we will fall to our knees in praise.  One day, all will come full circle, the world earth redeemed.

One day, God will remove all our heartaches and pain.  No longer will we suffer, our struggles gone as we enter our heavenly home; only God knows when.  Hope eternal burns brightly as we follow the Lord.

Our final move to heaven will give us a celestial address.  Singing with the angels in the presence of the Lord, our souls exploding with joy; we will live in Christ’s presence, sharing His inheritance.

Trust Jesus.

Place your faith in the one you can trust, Jesus.  No other god compares to what we have in Christ.  Freedom from condemnation leads the way to eternal hope.  All things made new when we submit them to Christ.

From lowly sinner to beloved saint, Jesus cleanses us from sin and gives us a new identity grounded in Him.  Christ calls us beloved, His love for us unending.  God’s children, united by Jesus.

Let your life become a bright beacon for Jesus.  Clothe yourself in the white robes Christ offers, letting go of your past, embracing the future God has for you.

God gives us His light to guide our way in a dark world.  Often we can only see a few feet ahead, but we can trust God knows the future and has a plan.  Nothing we do escapes the Creator; He knows our needs before we do and provides.

Jesus lights our world with His grace and mercy.  Just like candles share flames to light each other’s wick, the more we share God’s love, the brighter His light becomes.
