Names of Jesus Day 35: Sun of Righteousness

We are in Holy Week. For me, it’s usually a quiet work week, which is ironic, considering I work in a church setting. But I appreciate the time to meditate and reflect on the events that take place in the earthly life of Jesus and his followers.

This passage from the Old Testament shares a message with conveys God’s power. But it also states the truth and the revealing of why God sent his Son to us.

“’Surely the day is coming; it will burn like a furnace. All the arrogant and every evildoer will be stubble, and the day that is coming will set them on fire,’ says the Lord Almighty. ‘Not a root or a branch will be left to them. But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,’ says the Lord Almighty.” – Malachi 4:1-3

Jesus is our light in a dark world. When we are focused on Him and who he is and what he has done for us, there is always hope. Jesus is the center of our lives with a light shining so brightly that we can overcome the wicked because Christ has already defeated sin and every evil and won the war.
