The Light of Christmas: Light in the Darkness
“Light” and “Dark” are major themes throughout the pages of Scripture. In Ephesians 5:8, the Apostle Paul invites us to live as people of light in a dark world. In John 8:12, Jesus identifies himself as “the light of the world”. And in John 1:5, the Gospel of John speaks of Jesus as a “light shining in the darkness”. And yet, despite these passages (and many others), and despite the hope that we have in Jesus (the light of Christmas); our world, and even our lives at times, feels as though they remain in complete and utter darkness. Why is that? What is it about the “darkness” that traps and enslaves us? And how might Jesus want to shine his light into the darkness of your life this advent season as we prepare for Christmas?
