The True Light
As we are in the Christmas season, there is one prominent thing, which is lights. Lights have already begun to be strung throughout the towns and cities, houses, yards, and trees. To almost everyone, it just wouldn't be Christmas without lights. Lights provide a type of enjoyment, but it also gives direction and provides a kind of comfort. Jesus Christ is the Light of the world, and He provides comfort, guidance, and peace. This world is filled with darkness, and so many people are trying in their own strength to provide light for themselves, but without the true Light, there is nothing but darkness. Sadly, the world has rejected and pushed Jesus away from them, which is the only One who can give them light. People are in spiritual darkness, no matter how many earthy lights they may have in their life. This passage of Scripture states how John the Baptist was used by God to point those to the true Light. As Christians, we are not the Light but are called to illuminate the Light so that others may be drawn to God. Don't let things in your life block and hinder the Light from illuminated in your life. Shine bright for Christ and help others see their need for the true Light in their life.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all men through him might believe. He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. That was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John 1:6-9 (KJV)
