I love the light, but it’s light that shows every single thing as it really is. That’s what Isaiah does. He brings to us the light of God’s Word, the light of truth. If you’re a woman you know that you look much better in that soft light on that cosmetic mirror in your bathroom. I look so young there compared to the way you see me here. And when I go out in the light I think “Oh my gosh,” as I look in the rear vision mirror or I pull down the mirror to check my make-up before I go and I’m out in the broad daylight. I can see every little blemish, every little flaw. What is God doing in the book of Isaiah? He is bringing us to the light of truth and He is exposing the depths of darkness.
