"The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world." (John 1:9)
John wrote a genuine reflection that told us the truth about Christ—that he was the one true light. He recognized that Christ came to serve as a light in a world darkened by pain, sin, and hate. More than that, he came to give us hope for the future.
"The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned."
Christ became flesh to dwell among us so that we could see him as a light—an example of how we should live, act, and serve in our own lives.
As the Christmas season nears, we’ll see plenty of lights. There will be stars on top of trees, lights on the Christmas trees in lounges and lights draped outside houses.
When we see those lights shining brightly, rather than just admire the lights around us, let’s put ourselves on display.
Today, let us remember that Christ came to bring us eternal light so that we may be light in a dark world.
Enjoy a sparkling day.
