The Christmas light that shines for you today
December 25, 2015
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.”
For many years of my life, I was a late-riser. I never liked getting up early if it wasn’t absolutely necessary. In fact, the idea of waking up before the sun rose was almost nauseating to me.
But then we moved to Florida, and I kept hearing about the beautiful sunrises over the ocean. So one morning, I woke up to watch the sun rise. It was spectacular! From that time on, I got up to see the sun rise. And one of my favorite things about watching the sun rise was how slow it was.
You see, when the sun rises, it doesn’t just appear in the sky. No, it starts with darkness… then colors of light begin to appear on the horizon. Soon, the world becomes illuminated with reds and oranges. And then, you begin to see that big yellow ball peaking over the water, rising slowly until its circle appears fully on the water. It’s amazing!
When heaven touched earth and God came into the world, it was like the dawning of the day. He could’ve just appeared, but instead He smiled on the world and His light began to slowly shine. On that silent night so long ago, the light began to dawn.
Thank God for that light today. And Merry Christmas!
SPEND TODAY REFLECTING ON HOW GOD CAME INTO THE WORLD. THANK HIM FOR THE LIGHT HE SHINED THEN AND THE LIGHT HE SHINES IN OUR HEARTS TODAY!
