Have you ever experienced the beauty of sunrise after a long dark night of worry and fear? The first rays of light that pierced the darkness seemed to carry real hope of a better day. The warmth and energy the dawn fed into your body and soul; the colors flooding over the darkness, revealing the life and hope so far away all night.
Imagine how beautiful and exciting the morning must have been when they heard the angels say, “…Why seek ye the living among the dead? He is not here, but is risen:” Lu 24:5-6 Hope restored and renewed excitement because Jesus was alive! The Son had risen!
Do you remember how beautiful it was when the light of Jesus shone into your heart? The SON-rise in your soul, the relief, the warmth and exhilaration of hope it brought.
The sun rises every day driving life here on earth, providing energy for the water cycle and the transformation of basic elements into the foods that sustains us.
Let us celebrate the rising of the Son of God every day. Let us fulfill our calling to be the light of the world by embracing the rising of the Son of God, our Savior every day. Let it energize and drive the transformational work that brings relief and warmth and hope to all that remain in the darkness of night. May the Son rise in us today and every day ‘til He comes again!
