Let There Be Light!
Read: ISAIAH 9:2-7
Here’s what I know about the dark: with truly deep darkness, we can’t see anything. No color, no shapes, no beauty. But if there’s even a flicker of light, it makes a world of difference. Shine just a bit of light and we can see!
Even while we are yet sinners, God sends his child to shine as a great light, to be our “Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Because of this great light, our lives may shine beautifully for God and for our neighbors.
May we be like the moon and reflect the radiance of God’s glorious light, worshiping the creator and sustainer of all things and welcoming our Messiah to our broken and beautiful world.
Lord, be my wonderful Counselor, mighty God, everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. AMEN.
