THE LIGHT OF CHRISTMAS
John 8:12-19 (12) – Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” (NLT)
Just as the Christmas lights glitter and dispels darkness (evil)— Matthew 6:22-23), the birth and death of Jesus brought salvation (John 12:46-47). No wonder, our Bible reading affirms that Christ is the light of life and eternity. Whosoever receives Him shall walk in splendour and shine His light to the world (Matthew 5:13-16; Luke 4:18-19; Revelation 21:24). Therefore, the question is if we have genuinely accepted Jesus as our Lord.
We often claim to be Christians, but do we live the purpose for which the saviour was born and crucified? Can the world see Christ in me? (Colossians 1:27). Let us use this Christmas to reflect and identify any dark spot in our lives and journey of faith. Peradventure, you still fall to the temptations of sin, but you desire freedom. This hour is that special moment you will never forget because your light has come! All you need do is to repent and confess; or rededicate your life to Jesus (Revelation 3:20). He shall brighten up your life and make you a light to the world.
Hymn: Oh, Holy Night – Placide Cappeau (1847)
1. Thank God for the birth of Jesus!
2. Father, please, kindle every dark area of my life and make me a shining light!
3. Lord Jesus, please make every day a Christmas for my family, neighbours, the church, and me.
4. Any hand, covering my star from shining and voice from being heard; receive divine judgement.
5. Pray against any major attack and bloodshed in cities of the world.
