Your Light has Come

Arise, shine, for your light has come:
and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
Behold darkness covers the earth:
and thick darkness is over the peoples.
But upon you the Lord shall rise:
and the glory of the Lord will appear upon you.

New Testament Reading - Christ’s Sacrifice Takes Away Sin

thumb

15Christ came with this new agreement so that all who are invited may come and have forever all the wonders God has promised them. For Christ died to rescue them from the penalty of the sins they had committed while still under that old system.

Jesus beside the Sea of Galilee

24For Christ has entered into heaven itself to appear now before God as our Friend. It was not in the earthly place of worship that he did this, for that was merely a copy of the real temple in heaven. 25Nor has he offered himself again and again, as the high priest down here on earth offers animal blood in the Holy of Holies each year. 26If that had been necessary, then he would have had to die again and again, ever since the world began. But no! He came once for all, at the end of the age, to put away the power of sin forever by dying for us.

27And just as it is destined that men die only once, and after that comes judgment, 28so also Christ died only once as an offering for the sins of many people; and he will come again, but not to deal again with our sins.

This time he will come bringing salvation to all those who are eagerly and patiently waiting for him.
