Luke 2:32 A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
The world has been a dark world ever since Adam and Eve listened to the temptation of Satan. There was no hope until God Said: "The Seed of the woman shall bruise the serpent's head" --- a promise of coming victory for a lost race. He Who is the light of the Gentiles is the light of the world (Mt 4:16). The light shone for Israel first, but Israel rejected it's blessed beams. But again the light shall shine for the people now wandering over the earth in darkness. What is the duty of believers? Is it not to lift the light high so that the world of sinners in darkness may come into fellowship WITH Him?
Lord of Light, help us to shine as lights in a dark world, this day. Amen.
