Christmas Light, #2
In Him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.
The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. John 1:4, 9
Christmas celebrates the day the light of all mankind entered the world. The shadowed prophecies of old were fulfilled in a stable in Bethlehem. The King came in humble circumstances, to humble people, with humble shepherds as His first worshippers. And His light shined.
The light didn’t shine as the halo in an artistic rendering. Nor did it shine with the arrogance of an official legal decree. It shined in the dark places where sin hid, revealing the arrival of a new day—the day when life would overcome death. From then til now, it pulsates in the hearts of those who welcome Him. His light in us reveals truth, unmasks lies, illuminates shadows, gives clarity, and directs our way. The light of life is ours.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
Let your beautifully wrapped Christmas gifts remind you of God’s Gift of light shining in your heart.
