Happy Hanukkah – Let Your Light Shine!
Jesus told the Church, “You are the salt of the earth – You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden” (Matthew 5:13-16).
Based upon its Judeo-Christian biblical worldview, America has become a city upon a hill, and the eyes of the world are upon us. In 1630 aboard the ship Arbella, the soon-to-be Governor of Massachusetts, John Winthrop prophesied the new nation’s purpose: “We shall be as a city upon a hill, the eyes of all people are upon us.” America has been called to idealism and justice, beginning with its founding documents: the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Emancipation Proclamation.
The nation’s covenant with God lives on – it has not been repealed; so let your light shine, especially during the days of darkness!
“Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and deep darkness the people; but the Lord will arise over you, and His glory will be seen upon you. The Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising” (Isaiah 60:1-3)
