The book of Revelation is an excellent source of vivid images of Jesus and our first title is Morning Star taken from 22:16. "I am . . . the bright Morning Star." The image of the morning star or the rising sun, the light that shines in the darkness is threaded throughout Scripture. In the Old Testament it is a promise of the one to come. In the New Testament it refers both to Jesus birth and to his return. Until the glorious day of his return, we have the light of Scripture and the inspiration or light of the Holy Spirit to live in our hearts and guide our way.
For Reflection: Think of the Morning Star as you make transitions throughout your day. For other New Testament references see Luke 1:78, Ephesians, 5:14, 2 Peter 1:19 and Revelation 2:28.
Let us pray. Jesus, you are the bright Morning Star, the light of my life, the dispeller of darkness. Your are my lamp, my flashlight, my illuminator. You are the brightness in every dark day.
