Light: a Reflection on Psalm 78:40-72, Isaiah 49:1-7, Revelation 21:22-27 and Matthew 12:14-21

Despite my sinfulness, God continues to choose me. And such is the case for you. God’s electing choice for me to follow him was done in my complete depravity. I continue to believe and repent in gratitude to God’s unconditional choice. Isaiah was chosen to be a light unto the nations. Jesus is the ultimate servant to be a light unto the nations. And our choice in and through him means we are to be servants of light unto the nations. Our union in Jesus Christ connects us all to the same purpose. Only those who by God’s choice have their names written in the Book of Life will enter the New Jerusalem; a city where light will shine all the time. Jesus, the light of the world, rejected by the Jews, became hope to the Gentiles. Jesus continues to proclaim justice in and through you and me. I am thankful for God’s choice. As I view that choice despite of and even in my brokenness, I am humbled.

Scripture texts are taken from the two-year daily lectionary cycle which follows the liturgical calendar and begins on the First Sunday of Advent.
