Let There Be Light!

Let There Be Light!

December 26

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.

About the Author

Alice Lee | Arriving at the “gold mountain” at seven years old as a “stranger and alien” and taking ESL in my adopted homeland, I found my home and true inheritance when I entered into the eternal life relationship with Jesus (John 17:3) at the age of thirteen and gave my life to him. I had the privilege of being the first in my family to finish college, earning a BA in psychology. Then I went on to receive a master’s degree in Christian education from Dallas Theological Seminary. I am immensely blessed to partner in life and ministry with my husband, Ed, for the past thirty-six years. Together with our children (Matthew, Melissa, and Anthony Emerson) we serve at Mosaic—an intentionally diverse church— in Sugar Land, Texas, so that we the church reflect the one triune God and his heart for all people. When free, I’m learning to be nana to our granddaughter, Zoe Grace, or growing our garden.
