SCRIPTURE READING:
Malachi 4:2-3

But for you who revere my name, the sun of righteousness will rise with healing in its rays. And you will go out and frolic like well-fed calves. Then you will trample on the wicked; they will be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day when I act,” says the Lord Almighty

SIGNIFICANCE:
The LORD JESUS CHRIST, Who is the Son of God, radiates the virtues of God.

Dear Father, I revere Your name and Your Son’s name, the Sun of Righteousness! Like the multitudes of people who experienced His authoritative teachings and miraculous healings when He walked among them 2000 years ago, I am in awe that He is the source and giver of inexhaustible light, perfect righteousness, absolute truth, all-sufficient heat, incomparable revelation and complete healing today. I praise Jesus again for what Paul declares about Him in Colossians 1:18b-19, “And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him.” Hallelujah, that the Sun of Righteousness is supreme righteousness, and that the fullness of Your righteousness dwells in Him. I pray that He will rise up with His healing rays to cleanse me and my family members of all unrighteousness and afflictions, so that we will live in His holiness, radiance, light, truth, warmth, joy, victory, hope and grace. I pray that we will “go out and frolic like well-fed calves,” to give Him all the glory He deserves, and to be witnesses of His light to the world around us. I pray that the Sun of Righteousness will shine so brilliantly in His people, that many unsaved people will come to watch us “shine” for Him. In His holy name I pray these things. Amen.
