14. Jesus the Light of the World


John 12:46
I have come as a light into the world, that whoever believes in Me should not abide in darkness.

We celebrate Christmas because we celebrate Jesus

  • the Light of the world that dispels the darkness of sin
  • the strong and eloquent contrast to the darkness of those opposing Him
  • who calls us to be His light in a world filled with sorrow and despair

For being the Light that takes away the darkness of sin, thank you Lord.
May I shine your light on those you have placed around me, especially this season.
