“This happened so that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet would be fulfilled: “The land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, by the way of the sea, on the other side of the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles – the people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, And those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, Upon them a Light dawned” (Matthew 4:14-16).

All of Scripture gives testimony of Christ.  Once you begin to understand this, you begin to gain the wisdom the Lord desires for everyone and know that Scripture interprets Scripture.  It all speaks of Christ, and you and I are called into the life of Christ.  The light is shining in the darkness and as many as see the light are given the power to become children of the Heavenly Father.

Through the water of my baptism, You have brought me to a place where I may know that You, my Lord and Savior, have prepared the way before me to become like You.  In the faith You have given me, Holy Spirit, guide my thoughts, words, and deeds to hear the fullness of Your word and then to act upon what You have given me.  Help me to walk in the light of Your purpose and presence.

Lord Jesus, there are moments when I see.  Like Peter, James, and John, I stand in the light.  But then, there are moments when I doubt and become like those who asked for one more sign.  At all times, help me to remember that You are my Savior.  Lead me today, Lord Jesus, so that I may humbly walk in Your shining light and do all that You ask me to do.  Amen.
