“The Lord will be your everlasting light.”
From Everlasting to Everlasting . . .
December seems to be a month when we share a few of our favorite things. For me, my favorite things are fairly simple:
A steaming cup of chai tea on a chilly winter morn.
A novel that beckons every turn of the page until the very last line.
A sunset that paints the sky in hues so bright you pause to wonder at the Painter.
These are a few of my favorite things. But each one will eventually come to an end.
The cup of tea will soon offer its last drop.
The novel will soon give up its last page.
The sunset will soon fall behind the last light.
As the cliche goes . . . all good things must come to an end. But the truth is, all things will come to an end. All except One.
There is One who will last forever.
He lives from everlasting to everlasting. And He invites us to join Him for eternity.
The LORD is our Light.
Time cannot contain Him.
An orbit around the sun cannot measure Him.
The highest mountain cannot reach Him.
He is uncontainable, immeasurable, unreachable.
And yet, the Uncontainable chose to become contained in the small body of a Child.
The Immeasurable chose to become measurable in the finite body of a Man.
The Unreachable chose to become reachable with His arms stretched out on a cross.
And now He lives inside every person who calls on His name — Jesus — our Everlasting Light.
