January 26 – Day 12: Tabernacle Prayers
The candlestick represented light. It was made from gold, which symbolized purity, the further you went into the tabernacle, the closer you got to the light, and the nearer you got to the purity of the One True God. When Jesus came to earth, he identified himself as the Light of the world (John 8:12). He provided a way for us to get closer to God.
You are the light of the world—
like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. (Matthew 5:14)
THE CANDLESTICK – THE HOLY SPIRIT
As we follow Christ, we are reminded that we are the light of the world, and we need to shine daily. Reflect on your activities throughout the day and think about how you can reflect Jesus’ light, brighter than before.
Today, remember that Jesus is the light in this dark world. And prayer is the path to that light. Pray that his light will be revealed and that he will use you to shine his light to the world.
think about it:
How or to whom can you reflect the light of Jesus? Think of specific names and ideas unique to those people.
