Next Day

The text for today's hymn cannot be published due to copyright limitations. We apologize for the inconvenience.

Epiphany is a season of Aha's. It's a time to be surprised by the Invasion of God in our lives, to let God into our hearts and to let that God-light shine brightly through us. It's also a time, perhaps, to surprise and challenge ourselves to intentionally look for God in those "Aha" moments of our lives and to choose to respond. It was like that for Samuel, Philip and Nathanael; God showed up and called them into the light to participate in this Invasion of Holiness. God called them to bring light in the darkness and healing in the midst of brokenness. The title of the hymn, "Arise, Your Light has Come" reminds us that the time is now--time to acknowledge that the light has come; time to "show forth the glory of your God which shines on you today."

Our prayer through this week concludes:… You are the one who invades our hearts with holiness. Let us arise, for your Light has come. Amen.
