The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

– Isaiah 9:2 (NIV)

Today’s commentary
by Dave Whitehead, Senior Pastor, GraceNYC.org

Isaiah was speaking to Israel during a very difficult time. They were falling apart as a nation as the Assyrian Empire was attacking and conquering them. It was a very dark time. Yet God was shining a light upon His people and, according to Matthew in the New Testament, that light is for us as well. We need help in the darkness of our lives, and Christ is the light that gives light to every person. Instead of being a celestial Sugar Daddy giving us what we think we need, Jesus Christ is our Savior setting us free from our sin.
