See and Be God's Light!

“In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:4-5

We live in a dark world. The ominous shadows of darkness lurk over our intellectual, political, relational and moral realms. However, on that night when Christ was born, His star punctured the blackened sky and signaled the coming of humanity’s Savior. Because Christ stepped from heaven into our world, we can access His guiding light.

The Bible tells us that God dwells in unapproachable light. In our fallen state, we cannot know God, nor stand in His presence, or experience His love. Our rebellion and selfishness creates a vast chasm between sinful people and our Holy Creator. We are called “enemies” and “aliens” in His revealed Truth which results in eventual destruction and death.

How could we ever stand in the light of the pure, pristine holiness of God Almighty? Since we could not approach the Light, God sent His Light in Jesus. When the eternal entered an embryo and the infinite became an infant, God’s guiding light pierced our deadly darkness!

As you reflect on Christ’s birth, embrace anew God’s invitation: “I am the Light of the world; whoever follows after Me will not walk in darkness but will have the light of life.” (John 8:12) Let the illumination of Christ’s truth and presence light every dark corner of your existence. Intentionally stay close to Christ and walk in His protecting and directing light. Furthermore, embrace God’s assignment: “You are the light of the world. Let your light so shine among men that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16) Choose to serve as His radiant representative in your realm.

This Christmas season I am praying for you that every light on your tree will propel you to see and be God’s living light!
