One thing I wanted to experience before I leave this world is to witness the setting of the sun by the beach. I want to watch how the sun hides to the water and hits home to give way to Mr. Moon which is on duty during the night. The sun and the moon has one thing in common and that is emitting light that helps us perform activities of daily living. Without these two important bodies of the Solar System, darkness will reign and we don’t want that to occur.
Photographers love to capture the setting sun. It is nature’s work of art. However, there are some who hates to see it. Sun rise signifies new hope that’s why others do not want to see it set for darkness means misery and suffering. For it is as if hope will be lost together with the setting down of the sun.
Through the sun and moon, we appreciate the importance of light. But one day will come that the sun, years from now, will lost its luster and die. If that case happens, where on earth will it put us?
Here comes the answer—Isaiah 60:20.
Your sun will never set again,
and your moon will wane no more;
the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and your days of sorrow will end.
We have an everlasting God who will shine his light upon us forever. He promised that the sun shall no more go down nor the moon withdraw itself. Certainly, all of his words will come to pass.
Life here on earth is just temporary though it is a prerequisite for us to enter the gates of heaven. But once we are already living in the new earth, for sure there is no more pain nor suffering. Darkness will no longer exist.
