When we think of LIGHT, our minds often go to the sun and the moon. Genesis teaches us that God created them, ‘to give light on the earth’, Genesis chapter 1 verse 15. It would be hard to imagine a place without them. However, the last book in the Bible, introduces us to such a place – a heavenly city that has ‘no need of the sun or the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminates it. The Lamb (the Lord Jesus) is its light’, Revelation chapter 21 verse 23. Indeed, there is ‘no night there’, Revelation chapter 22 verse 5.
The good news is that God has made it possible for us to enjoy the glory of this city. His Son, the Lord Jesus, came here and died in the darkness of Calvary to save us from the darkness of a lost eternity: ‘Now from the sixth hour until the ninth hour there was darkness over all the land. And about the ninth hour Jesus cried with a loud voice . . . My God, My God why have You forsaken me’, Matthew chapter 27 verse 44. He took upon Himself the judgement of God for our sin in that dark hour that, through faith in Him, we might enjoy the unbroken light of heaven for eternity.
