Just as light removes darkness from wherever it is, so the brilliance of Jesus, the Light of the World, removes darkness from wherever He is. He brings light wherever He goes. Certainly, He brings moral and ethical light and purity, but He also brings clarity and truth as well. Think of what he brought when He, the GOD-man came to earth. When those disciples got to know Him, they were getting to know GOD in human flesh! I can’t imagine sitting there conversing with Him like they did.

I suspect if we truly understood what we are celebrating today, our celebrations would be through the roof, but in different ways than they are now. I’m looking forward to thinking more about the wonder of the Light coming into our world and destroying the darkness by the brilliance of His light!

Have a wonderful Christmas and a Blessed New Year!

Then shall your light break forth like the dawn,
    and your healing shall spring up speedily;
your righteousness shall go before you;
    the glory of the Lord shall be your rear guard.
Then you shall call, and the Lord will answer;
    you shall cry, and he will say, ‘Here I am.’

And the Lord will guide you continually
    and satisfy your desire in scorched places
    and make your bones strong;
and you shall be like a watered garden,
    like a spring of water,
    whose waters do not fail.

Isaiah 58:8-9, 11

 

Again Jesus spoke to them, saying, 
“I am the light of the world.
Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness,
but will have the light of life.”

John 8:12

 

The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. 
He was in the world, and the world was made through him,
yet the world did not know him.
 
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
 
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name,
he gave the right to become children of God,

who were born,
not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man,
but of God.

 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we have seen his glory,
glory as of the only Son from the Father,
full of grace and truth.
 

John 1:9-14
