July 16th – Malachi 4:2
Because of its ability to efficiently kill germs, before antibiotics, sunlight was used to speed up the healing of wounds. Malachi warns us about the approaching “Day of the Lord”. A day in which everyone will feel the heat, but not everyone will receive the healing. Those who reject the life saving message and gift of salvation, will become ashes, tread under the feet of the saved. But for Christians, that day will be a glorious day of complete restoration and joy. For the “Sun of Righteousness”, will arise. And as a bird spreads it’s wings, He will spread His rays of healing. Our Lord, Jesus Christ, will return to bind the wounds of His people and call them home. And the overwhelming joy that fills our hearts at the sight of our Savior, will cause us to frolic with the happiness of a caged animal set free!
