A Great Light
There are two wonderful passages of Scripture from the prophet Isaiah that have been inextricably tied to Christmas. You have sent or received cards that have one of these two verses or sang them. But a greater appreciation is that they are promises made in a dark time of fear, chaos, and people going their own direction. Something that we are certainly familiar with – because it is a part of our human experience.
But consider the joy that we experience when we think of how that child showed up. He always knows when to show up. Jesus will always be our light in a dark time.
