John 1: 4-8, 9, 10, 14a
“In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. He came as a witness, to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him. He was not the light, but came to bear witness about the light….The One who is the true Light was coming into the world. He came into the very world He created, but the world didn’t recognize Him. and even they rejected Him….so the Word became human and made His home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen His glory.”
So today, look past the twinkle and sparkle of the festive decor and notice the brightest light of the Advent season! The One True Light that shines brighter than them all ~ brighter than all the rest and even brighter than the star that came to rest over the stable to announce His royal, heavenly birth. Yeah, the Messiah a gift from Heaven, was promised to a hurting world and He came as light and hope and life and flesh and walked among us! His light and His word lights our way, through this wretched world and through the darkness and the unknown because He Himself is the Light and in Him there is no darkness at all as 1 John 1: 5 reminds us, “This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.”
If we abide in Him and He in us, our pathway is illuminated by this One who came to light our way and show us His glory. So, beautiful soul, if you’ve seen the glory of His Light, praise the God who graced you with favour and remember to pray diligently for those who haven’t yet recognized Him or accepted Him. Pray for those who have yet to be awakened to the wonder of His unconditional love and forever faithfulness. Pray for them to be rallied and quickened to new light and new life in Christ, as we share the joy of the season through the message of Light, Hope and unconditional love to those around us.
“When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
