Gloom And Doom!
Daily Reading – Genesis 8 – 9 / Matthew 4:1-17
WHAT GOD HAS SAID:
Matthew 4:16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
WHAT I HAVE SEEN:
Winters have always been a gloomy time in Michigan. It seems as if the sun just goes behind the clouds and hibernates until spring. Many people get feelings of depression and weariness because of this lack of sun. This is the picture we are to get from the phrase, “shadow of death.” Standing in a shadow is caused by something coming between the sun and us. How gloomy it is to stand in the shadow of death.
When Jesus steps into their life it says, “light is sprung up.” As the sun is refreshing on a gloom filled day, the SON is also refreshing on a doom filled life.
WHAT DO YOU SAY:
How might we let the light of Christ shine through us to brighten someone’s life today?
