No more night

Today is the longest day of the year.  It is known as the summer solstice.  I noticed today that it took longer to get dark today.  This reminds me that  Jesus is the light of the world.

 

 

 

John 11:9 -10 (NIV) passage: 9 Jesus answered “Are there not twelve hours of daylight?  A man who walks by day will not stumble, for he sees by this world’s light. 10 It is when he walks by night that he stumbles, for he has no light.”

 

 

When we get to heaven there will no more night, because Jesus is light.  There is song by David Phelps “No More Night” it is about how God will make all things new no more night, no more pain, no more tears…we will live in light of the risen Lamb.

The pains of this world, the schemes of our dark rulers, the griefs that bind us in the chains of despair, all of these things will be passed away. They will be purged away in the glorious fire of His Love. And we shall see, at last, not the two-faced thugs that pretend to be our leaders, but the true Face of that Love that will finally lead us home.
