How You Are Known (7) – A Star
“I shall see him, but not now: I shall behold him, but not nigh: there shall come a Star out of Jacob, and a Sceptre shall rise out of Israel, and shall smite the corners of Moab, and destroy all the children of Sheth.” (Numbers 24:17)
What could be more beautiful or more fitting than that our Lord should be called of God “a Star”? Those who know Him best may say, “I shall see him, but not now. I shall behold him, but not nigh.” From beyond our world of trouble and care and change, He shines with undimmed light, a radiant, guiding Star to all who will follow Him – a morning Star, promise of a better day.
