THE LIGHT HAS COME

Christmas has passed but the Light does not. May it never go out in my life. May it never go out in yours.

THE LIGHT HAS COME

The Light has come
for Christ was born.
He came to earth
to face men’s scorn.

The Light has come,
in manger laid.
His life poured out–
the price is paid.

The Light has come
to lift our souls
from darkness’ hold
to make us whole.

The Light has come.
He died, now lives.
He’s ransomed me.
True life He gives.

SHADOW

I am meant to cast the shadow of the one who created me. So often I do not. Often, I think the sun shines on me so I can be the one who is the most important. But the true meaning and joy of living comes when I realize that the shadow people see as God’s light shines on me is His shadow–the One who created and loves me, the Jesus whose birth we celebrate!


THE LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS

THE SON ROSE
The darkness was pierced,
the shadows pushed aside
and light filled the world
for the Son had risen.

Darkness gave way to light,
the sky glowed in color
for morning had come.
The Son had risen.

As I looked at the picture, the sun’s rays touching the ground and the neighbor’s pond glowing in the distance, I thought of the light Christ brought into the world when He came as a baby. But He didn’t stay a baby. He died for our sins, and He rose that we might have light in this dark world. May God bless you this season with His light from above.
