“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.” ~Isaiah 9:2
During the holidays, Christmas lights decorate our homes inside and out. We wrap our Christmas trees with lights and hang them from our roof. These lights switch on at night so they shine brightly and beautifully in the darkness.
The prophet Isaiah also spoke about light saying, “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.”
Our small, strung together lights not only display the beauty of Christmas, but also as Isaiah teaches, help dispel the darkness. As we celebrate with lights this season, let us be mindful that shining our lights will illuminate the world around us.
How has God’s light dawned in your life?
Where is He calling you to shine your light today?
