Rise & Shine!

Rise & Shine!

Remember when your mom would come into your room early on a sunny morning, pull open the drapes and say; Rise and Shine!

Well this is what God said to us when we received the Gospel into our hearts.

Isa 60:1  “Arise, shine; for your light has come, And the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.

God opened up your blinders and now the Glory of the Lord is upon you. God is Saying to us, Wake Up and Shine, be radiant and glow with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Isa 60:2  “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.

We need to get out and let the light of Jesus shine on the dark world around us. Notice how the Lord says, “darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples… Those people in the deep darkness could be your friends, your family, your co-workers. Whoever they are, we need to “Arise and Shine”, light up that deep darkness with the love of Christ.

Now the next time you hear someone say “Rise and Shine”, it will have a whole new meaning to you. Now Rise and Shine there is much to be done for the kingdom of God…
