The people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light…
And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death
Light has dawned
The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world…
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us,
and we have seen his glory…
And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace…for grace and truth came through Jesus Christ…(and) to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God.
We, as believers, are of all people most blessed in this season as we celebrate our Savior’s coming.
May God’s light shine all around you and your family this Christmas season and then through you to enlighten your world.
“And we have something more sure, the prophetic word, to which you will do well to pay attention as to a lamp shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts…” II Pet. 1:19 ESV
I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of LIFE! Jn.8:12
