16 “I, Jesus, have sent my angel to testify to you about these things for the churches. I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.”
Jesus identifies Himself using titles and phrases that go all the way back to the Christmas story. The root of David, the town of David, the line of David. All of this represents His alignment with the messianic prophecies. The bright morning star is the way the shepherds and wise men found Jesus. From the first night of His birth the star led mankind to Jesus. Jesus identifies himself as the Bright Morning Star.
From the Old Testament promises, to the night of His birth, to the last chapter of the last book of the Bible, Jesus was, is and always will be the main character. He is the Bright Morning Star.
A few things…
-May I look to you as my guiding light in a dark world.
-May I trust you as faithful and not buy into the lie that I know better.
-May I live in constant awareness that you are the main character, not me.
Father, thank you for your love. Thank you for you forgiveness. Thank you for being the Bright Morning Star. I choose to worship you and you alone today!
