Darkness Over the Whole Land

Bible Text: Luke 23:26–56 |

I don’t need to convince anyone. We live it every day of our lives. The darkness around us brings burdens, sorrows, brutality, and anger. Our news sources are filled with it. For that matter, our lives are filled with it. There’s no escaping the heartache and real-world pain that pursues us over the course of our lives. And yet, it is not all bleak and barren because the light still shines—even in the darkness—revealing hope, peace, faith, and love. These gifts, delivered to us by our God, sustain us and give us reason to endure all that the world throws at us. At no time was this more obvious than on that Friday when our Lord was crucified. In the midst of the darkness, faint glimmers of light began to shine even as he hung there, dying.
