Jesus brings the light of God’s love into our dark world. His name is Emmanuel meaning God with us. We might think that God is remote and unconcerned about the plight of humanity. But Christmas reminds us that God cares for us so much that he stooped to become one of us. In Jesus, God knows what it is to be human. He came to rescue us from the darkness of sin and suffering that shrouds our world.
to shine on those living in darkness
and in the shadow of death,
to guide our feet into the path of peace.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Enjoy the Christmas lights that illuminate our streets at this time of the year. But do not forget the True Light of Christmas.
