A Day When There Will Be No More Darkness

April 17, 2014

Lent Day 39, Good Friday, April 18

And I saw no temple in the city, for its temple is the Lord God the Almighty and the Lamb. And the city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and its lamp is the Lamb. By its light will the nations walk, and the kings of the earth will bring their glory into it, and its gates will never be shut by day—and there will be no night there. Revelations 21:22-25

Why is it called Good Friday? The Lord, the Lamb of God, was slain and darkness fell on the land. But then light defeats darkness. The Lamb of God is raised and is our light forever.

Imagine what it will be like. No more night. We will see by the light of the glory of the God and the Lamb. It is coming. This is why Good Friday is good.

Ponder: Why is Good Friday good? All we can see is the death of the One we longed for and loved. It seems the victory has gone to the Enemy. But wait. Remember his promises. Look for the Light. There will come a day when there will be no night.

Praise: The city has no need of sun or moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light and its lamp is the Lamb of God. There will be no night and no shut doors.
