"Jesus Is Our Light"
(Heart of Christmas Series)
"The true Light that gives light to every man was coming into the world."
We are surrounded by lights this time of year. They twinkle from trees, shine from rooftops, and glow through windows.
All of this reportedly began when Thomas Edison’s vice president decorated his Christmas tree with lights shortly after Edison invented the first light bulb. The idea caught on and still continues today.
But long before the first Christmas light ever came into being, God had one of His own. Jesus said, “I am the Light of the World.” This Light was also meant for a tree. But this time the tree would be a wooden cross at Calvary.
Even after 2000 years, Jesus is still shining bright and chasing away the darkness. So each time you see a twinkle this year, may it also be a reminder of the One who gives light to all mankind.
When God gave Jesus, He lit up the world with love.
How does Jesus bring light into your life? What are some ways you can pass His light on to others?
