The Rim of the Sunrise
There is a town in the extreme north of Norway where, about January 18, in each year, the people climb a hill in order that they may see the sun rise after months of night. Nothing more than a little rim is seen at first; but the people are satisfied, because they know that tomorrow, and throughout the days to come, the sun will shine in all his strength.
We are seeing, as it were, that small rim. The Sun of Righteousness will soon bring in the dawn of a new and brighter day. We don’t know the day and the hour, but we can say with apostle James in full assurance, "Lord's coming is near." (James 5:8)
