I was driving to work this morning with the sun in my eyes. To say this was a bright sunny day would be an understatement. After rains last night, the sun seemed more intense than normal. The sun’s brightness caused traffic to slow down in places because it was hard to see.
As I drove down the road singing along to one of my favorite songs about what I believe, I thought about Christ’s return and a different type of brightness. It will be the brightness of the Son, and I would venture to say that light will be blinding. His glory will encompass everything around us.
He will be brighter than the sun. His brightness will destroy evil. He is the bright and morning star.
I love how God gives us reminders of His presence and our hope. God used the sun that I would normally complain about being in my eyes as a way to remind me of His glory and Christ’s coming return. Can’t wait.
“The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light, And your God your glory” (Isaiah 60:19).
