Upcoming is the darkest, shortest day of the year. The sky is dark by 4:30pm. Yet only a couple days after this dismal day, the Christ is born! He brought light to a dark world, and shows us this in His word.
John 1:1-5 (ESV) In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
The days before Christmas may be dark, but rejoice! The Light of the World is coming!
Psalm 19:1 (ESV) The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky aboveproclaims his handiwork.
