Weekly Pursuit – Week 5 of April

2 Pet. 1:19 “And we have the prophetic word made more firm, to which you do well to give heed as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.”




[In 2 Peter 1:19] three sources of light are mentioned—the lamp shining in a dark place, the dawning day, and the rising morning star. As the shining lamp to the believers, the words of the Bible convey spiritual light that shines. Through such a shining, we are thoroughly exposed. In the church life there is nothing outwardly attractive. What attracted us and still attracts us is the shining of light. The divine light is always shining in the saints. As a result, there is not much need for correction, adjustment, convincing, or condemning. The inward shining through the word of God takes care of all the different problems and needs.


Whenever we receive a word from the Bible, this word shines in us, the shining exposes us, and the exposing subdues us. Others may be unable to subdue us, but the word of the Bible is able. We have something wonderful that shines within us and subdues us all the time. Sometimes we may want to argue with our spouse, but immediately the wonderful shining restricts us. This is the living word becoming the shining light in our experience. The word of God in the Bible, as a lamp shining in a dark place, conveys spiritual light that shines to enlighten the believers. This lamp becomes the morning star rising within the believers, which eventually brings in the dawning day, the age of the kingdom as a day that will dawn at the coming of the Lord Jesus as the Sun of righteousness. The shining light progresses from a lamp to the dawning day.
