Some announce the approach of dawn, but only a few listen and respond. All they have known is darkness how could dawn be coming? It's never come before. And yet, the pink glow on the horizon hints at a change. Those in darkness tell you that the sun is permanently setting with eternal night ahead. Those who know the light smile and tell you of sunrise that is soon to come.
No one knows what to expect.
We've been in darkness for so long.
And yet the dawn was promised by the one who will introduce the eternal day, Jesus Christ. He said, "I am the light of the world; he who believes in me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." Jesus often used light and life as synonyms. He considered them the same. Light and life verses darkness and death. We live in a world that only knows death and darkness, but soon light and life will come and darkness will never be known again.
Dawn is near. The sun (Son) is soon to rise and with him comes life and eternal light. Do you know him? Are you ready for the dawn? The dawn is near.
