Perpetual Light

Today marks the Winter Solstice in the Southern Hemisphere, where we experience the longest night and shortest day of the year. Some countries, closer towards the North Pole, are currently having perpetual daylight - where they can have no real darkness at all. It is amazing to think of living in a world where there is no darkness at all.

In a spiritual sense this is what we long for - we long to be in the presence of Christ for eternity, where there is no 'darkness' at all. We get a glimpse of what this can be like when we read these words from Leviticus.

Leviticus 24:1-4 - God spoke to Moses: “Order the People of Israel to bring you virgin olive oil for light so that the lamps may be kept burning continually. Aaron is in charge of keeping these lamps burning in front of the curtain that screens The Testimony in the Tent of Meeting from evening to morning continually before God. This is a perpetual decree down through the generations. Aaron is responsible for keeping the lamps burning continually on the Lampstand of pure gold before God.
May the Light of Christ fill your heart today.
Living in Grace
