The Way of the Righteous.

Saturday, 4 September 2010.

New Years Eve in 2000 was a memorable event! With a bunch of friends, I drove down to a great beach outside of Melbourne, sat and chatted all night just so that we could sit and watch the first sunrise of the Year 2000. We were sitting in darkness for hours, then suddenly, a glimmer of light appeared on the horizon. Over the course of few hours, this glimmer turned into a bright and shining light that was so beautiful I still remember it to this day.

Proverbs describes the life of a righteous person in a similar context. Proverbs 4:18 (NLT) says, “The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter until the full light of day.”

The “light” within Christians is Jesus Christ. Metaphorically, it represents who He is – purity, holiness and righteousness, to name a few. Just like the sun first appears on the horizon after night, so too does Christ when we are saved. As you grow in Him, this light grows and permeates throughout every part of you, glowing brighter and brighter.

A Girl of Wisdom loves Jesus and has committed her life to Him. She pursues a relationship with Him and subsequently grows in character that reflects Christ. She too, shines brighter and brighter as the years of her life unfold.
