The glory of the LORD

isaiah_4005cNo more striking description of our Lord’s work can be given than that He shines upon us with His divine light and leads us on the path of peace. Out of darkness—the symbol of estrangement from God, of ignorance, impurity and misery—He, the Sun of righteousness, leads us through His work of reconciliation along the way everlasting—the path of light and peace. . . . Through Christ the estrangement from God, the spiritual ignorance, enslavement to sin and the feeling of futility are replace by intimate communion with God, but true knowledge of the deepest truths of life, by inner freedom and richness of life—a consciousness of vocation which makes life worth while.” (Norval Geldenhuys, Commentary on the Gospel of Luke, p. 96).
