The Light of the World

The dawning of a new day


Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, born of a woman, but with God as his Father. He is the light of the world; like the sun rising dispels the darkness, so life in Jesus dispels spiritual darkness.


In the darkness
a light shines
that cannot be quenched.

In the shadows
a light shines
and hope grows bright.

In the night
a light shines
and joy is birthed.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it” (John 1:1-5).
