There’s a quiet hush over the mountains this morning. I gaze at the star that appears just before sunrise….And I think of the One who calls Himself the Bright Morning Star. The Star whose love motivated Him to reach down through the darkness of night and time. The One who came near bringing the Light of the World. The Light that shines in the darkness pointing the way to the Christ Child, the Savior. The greatest gift every given. The gift of Love who pierces through the darkness of night and death and promises eternal life for those who seek Him.
Over two thousand years ago, angels heralded the good news of the Christ child to lowly shepherds on a hillside nearby….And the Star of Bethlehem led wise men from afar to a babe born in a manger.
Down through the ages, many have asked who Jesus is.
I believe Jesus is:
The Radiance of God’s Glory
Exact representation of His nature
Upholds all things by His Word and His Power
Crowned in grace, glory, honor
Author of our salvation through sufferings
Better than Prophets
Better than angels
Better than Moses
Better than the Law
Better High Priest
For those who seek Him:
*Covenant of Love
Covenant of forgiveness
Covenant of Grace
*Jesus gave :
His life so that we may live
Took form of bond-servant
Made like us
Obedient to death
Death on a cross
Died so that we may live
Raised to Life
Ascended back to the Father
Jesus has: Prepared a place in Father’s House for those who believe in Him, repent of their sins, follow Him.
Jesus is: Coming again for those who love Him.
Prayer: LORD Jesus, Bright Morning Day Star, we worship You. Thank you for shining Your light and love into our hearts. Shine through our lives as we share Your Love with others.
I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the Bright and Morning star. The Spirit and the Bride say “come.” And let the one who hears say, “come.” And let the one who is thirsty come; let the one who wishes take the water of life without cost (Revelation 22:16-17 NASB).
