Special Delivery

He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son...

Colossians 1:13

All of us have experienced dark moments. And we all share the human condition of living in a dark world. But all Christians share the belief that our gracious God provides the most special delivery, bringing us into the kingdom of light. He is the God who has “called you out of darkness into his marvelous light” (1 Peter 2:9). He is the God who gives “light to those who sit in darkness” (Luke 1:79). He is the God who sent his Son Jesus, who says, “I have come into the world as light, so that whoever believes in me may not remain in darkness” (John 12:46). The world around us may be dark, but we live daily, by God’s gracious deliverance, in the light of Christ.

Heavenly Father, help me look always to the light of Christ, my great Deliverer. Amen.

Reflect: Allow the light of Christ to live in you, and let it overpower whatever darkness you face today.
