Light Shiner
God’s plan and purpose for John the Baptist was to bear witness to the true light that was coming into the world. Sadly, the Jewish leaders who were the administrators of God’s law rejected the very truth that would have set them free. The words of Moses should have prepared them to recognize their Messiah. Yet Isaiah predicted their response. “Who has believed what they heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1)
The law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
John 1:17
In Old Testament days, God’s presence dwelled among those He chose to administer His law in a tabernacle made by human hands. Since Pentecost, His Spirit dwells in His people. Christians now have the responsibility of declaring the truth of salvation through Jesus.

How are you doing in proclaiming God’s truth in your community? Pray for yourself and fellow believers to have opportunities to shine the light of the truth of Christ – and for the president and the leadership of this nation to be drawn daily to that same truth.
