The last four weeks of Advent have prepared us to discover the light is found in God in Our Lord Jesus Christ. Let there be light. The Gospel of Christmas Day, John 1:1-18, also reminds us, “The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.”
Merry Christmas to you and your family from us at the office – Lorne, Kayla, Ann, and myself.
The light, the incredible help we are going to receive comes to us in the form of a child. But, not any child, an extraordinary child: Wonderful Counselor, God-Hero, Father Forever, Prince of Peace. In other words the child will be from God the son of God, who brings the light of God’s wisdom, strength, and peace.
Later Jesus calls himself, “I am the light of the world.” (John 8.12) It is in God’s light that we see light. God is both the author of light and he is our light. He promises to lead us into light, to give wonderful counsel for every situation of our every situation of our lives.
This world can often seem dark. The darkness can fill our minds and our hearts. But God’s invitation for us this Christmas and holy season, is to come out of the dark, and walk in his light. He invites us to walk in his ways his peace and truth. Let there be light!
Merry Christmas, and happy holy New Year! Peace.
