Christmas is…Day 20

“The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.” —John 1:9

“But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for His own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.” —1 Peter 2:9

“I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”—Revelation 22:16

“There are two daysprings in the world’s past and future history. One is when Jesus Christ came into the world to shine His light in our hearts. The second will be when He will come again in glory as the bright and morning star. We shall then be indeed as shining stars of varying degrees.” (Complete Word Study Bible Dictionary)

Is Jesus shining bright in your heart and life this Christmas season? Be encouraged today that in Jesus you have been called out of darkness and into His marvelous light! The True Light has overcome the darkness of the world and the darkness of sin in our hearts.

Rejoicing in Him!

He is a Bright Morning Star

His Name IS Advent Devotion: Day 7

Jesus is the Bright Morning Star, the Light of the world.

Isaiah 9:2 and Numbers 24:17 are two prophecies that speak of Jesus as a great light and a star:

The people who walked in darkness
have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
on them has light shone. —Isaiah 9:2

I see him, but not now;
I behold him, but not near:
a star shall come out of Jacob,
and a scepter shall rise out of Israel. —Numbers 24:17
