Numbers 24:17 had predicted that “A star will come out of Jacob; a scepter will rise out of Israel.” That star was a young boy by the name of Jesus - who would save His people from their sins. Every evening when you wake up you can look at the stars and depend on the fact that it will be in the same spot it was the night before. The Evening Star - the Big Dipper - Andromeda - all of the constellations have remained the same throughout the ages. They have provided guidance and direction to ships sailing on the oceans. Jesus said of Himself - “I am the Root and the Offspring of David, and the bright Morning Star.” (Re 22:16) When that Star rose on our earth - He gave people direction. He told people, “I am the way, the truth and the life - noone comes to the Father except through me.” He said, “I came to seek and to save that which was lost.” He said, “It isn’t the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick.” Most importantly Jesus said, “I haven’t come to be served, but to serve, and to give my life as a ransom for many.” That’s our light.
