On this first Sunday of Advent, we look forward with hope to the coming of Christ. We focus not only on His birth all those years ago, but now, perhaps more than at any other time, we look with hope toward Jesus coming back.
Isaiah gave us this prophecy about Jesus:
The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.
The world is darkened these days by the shadow of sin. The tragic remnants of evil are all around us. But we have hope! Jesus was born into the world, a “great light” to lead us out of sin’s darkness. He lit our way to heaven, and He is coming again. We trust that He is coming back soon to bring His light to the world.
So, when you hang Christmas lights this holiday season, as you light up the darkness around you, do it to honor Jesus.
Do it in remembrance of Him because:
JESUS IS THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD!
and He is coming back soon:
Come, Lord Jesus! Come.
