Recently I took a 6 AM flight out of Pensacola. As I settled back, the horizon outside my window was dark, but gradually, it lightened into a canvas of reds and oranges. The profusion of color took my breath away.
Yet not everyone else on that plane was enjoying my view. Just across the aisle, quite a few of my fellow passengers still sat in darkness. Their windows faced a dark sky with no hint of dawn.
What a great picture of our world today! Collective, humankind knows so much about the complexities of nature, yet many still attribute something as complex as a sunrise to the whims of chance and time. Multitudes remain in darkness, never seeing the light of Truth–or embracing the sunrise as a gift from their Creator.
This Easter, take time to enjoy a sun rise and meditate on its Source. And don’t forget—salvation comes through the Son-rise!
