In the Light of the Lamb


The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. —Revelation 21:23

The sun and moon are to light the day and the night. 

Whether illuminating our path or providing the life-giving radiance for fruitful crops and the nutrients our bodies need, the sun and moon are part of God’s marvellous provision of light. 

Someday God will provide a different kind of illumination. 

The eternal heavenly city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light.

The Lord Jesus Christ in His glorified state will be the spiritual lamp that lights up that joyous new world.

In eternity, the Lord Jesus Christ will be the Lamp that lights our way. 

What a thrill it will be one day to live in the light of the Lamb!

In eternity, the redeemed will live in the presence of God Himself.
