It’s All About Jesus // Isaiah 60:3

Today’s verse comes from a beautiful section in Isaiah that speaks to prophecy. Isaiah points out that a great light will come from Jerusalem to attract people from all over the world. This refers to two big ‘G’ words that I want to explore. The first is glory, which is a fancy way to say God’s presence, which is light, just as Jesus would later say, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). The second ‘G’ word is Gentiles, which refers to people not from the Jewish heritage, culture, and religion. Galatians 3:28 tells us, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile…for you are all one in Christ Jesus.” Jesus, therefore, is the fulfilment of prophecy in the Old Testament who we celebrate from the New Testament all the way into today. Will you bask in the glorious presence of Jesus? He is your light and your unity, both with God and others. He rises above every category we use to discriminate to shine a light on our individual need to be united with God and each other. So, may we all fall into the procession of nations and kings who are seeking to hope of God’s glory and adoption into God’s forever family.
