The Lamb is its light

Revelation 21:22-27

22 But I saw no temple in it, for the Lord God Almighty and the Lamb are its temple. 23 The city had no need of the sun or of the moon to shine in it, for the glory of God illuminated it. The Lamb is its light. 24 And the nations of those who are saved shall walk in its light, and the kings of the earth bring their glory and honor into it. 25 Its gates shall not be shut at all by day (there shall be no night there). 26 And they shall bring the glory and the honor of the nations into it. 27 But there shall by no means enter it anything that defiles, or causes an abomination or a lie, but only those who are written in the Lamb’s Book of Life.

What an awesome visual of the Lord being shone as "THE" light. With HIM there's no need for any other light source. "Man would I save on the power bill." Imagine life in the New Jerusalem.

Lord, I pray that I would be so focused on you no darkness could enter my life. I pray this also for everyone who's eyes fall upon this reading. You are the light and the only light that we need. In Jesus name, amen.
