“Light Of God Shine On Us!”
According to Matthew Jesus began his preaching ministry in Capernaum in fulfilment of Isaiah’s prophecy that “the people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned…”(Mtt.4:15-16).
Isaiah’s prophecy forsaw the birth of a child who will have the government upon his shoulders. His names include, “Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace…”
Such is Jesus the Christ. He is the light that came into the world to dispel the darkness of evil. His presence is reason for great rejoicing because his coming ushers a new dawn when war weapons “will be fuel for fire.”
The reign of Jesus is a reign where there will be no end to peace. His reign will establish and uphold his kingdom with justice and righteousness for ever.
The visible kingdom of Jesus is the Church militant of which he is the head. Her members are to shine the light of the Lord, following in his footsteps of expanding his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousnes. Once there is justice and righteousness peace becomes inevitably the sine qua non! Justice and righteousness must precede peace, for “peace without justice is like a crumbling city wall!”
My friend, you and I should strive to be a radiance of the light of Christ even as he himself said, that we are the light of the world and we should shine such that others should see our good works and give glory to our Father in heaven.
To shine the light we have to eschew injustice, uphold truth and righteousness and ensure that the peace which passes all understanding becomes inevitable!
Through human effort we may not achieve this, but when we implore the Holy Spirit, then “the zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this” for us(Isa.9:2-7).
Weekend prayer: Thank you Lord for being a light in our darkness. May your zeal enable us to be harbingers of light, justice, righteousness and peace. Amen!
Have a blessed weekend! Peace be with you!
