To get the most out of this devotion, set aside time to read the Scripture referenced throughout.


Many churches around the world proudly display their stained glass windows­—art that serves a two-fold purpose: to enhance the beauty of the space and teach Scripture (as well as church history, in many cases) through narrative or symbolism. This is why these gorgeous works are often referred to as the “Poor Man’s Bible.”


The oldest examples of stained glass in the world, dating back to the 11th century, are the Prophet Windows in Germany’s Augsburg Cathedral. These windows—all that remain from a larger set—feature five Bible “greats”: David, Jonah, Daniel, Moses, and Hosea, all members of the great cloud of witnesses who encourage us as we “run with endurance the race that is set before us” (Heb. 12:1-3).


Like those figures who brighten the cathedral and encourage the hearts and minds of those who view them, we too are “windows” to the world. Through us, the Lord reaches those lost in darkness. We are the portals through which light and hope from God’s kingdom can be seen.


Think about it

• Think of people who need to experience God’s light and love in a tangible way. How can you serve as a “window” for them?
