"Rising Sun" - Day 41
Because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the RISING SUN will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.
These are the words of Zechariah, immediately after the birth of his first son John. Zechariah and his wife Elizabeth were well into their golden years and past the age of childbearing, but God had miraculously brought them a little boy. Their son John eventually grew up to announce the coming of Jesus, the Rising Sun. The King James translation uses the term "Dayspring" instead of Rising Sun. The dayspring is when the very first light of dawn appears over the horizon. Jesus came as that blessed light. Just as the earth could not survive without light, and those such as Zechariah and Elizabeth who have faced long nights know well, Jesus brings so much to our world. Let us thank God for him and live in his light!
