As you know Jesus is the center of Christmas season. Our Christmas celebration is around the corner tonight Dec 19th (7:00 PM) tomorrow morning Dec 20th (10:45 AM) and the coming week of holiday. In the love of Christ with gratitude toward our Savior, Light of December reminds us:
(1) Jesus is the Light of the world ( John 8:12) Do you have the Light of Jesus in your heart ? let the Light shine in your life. Christmas without Jesus is empty, sad and meaningless.
(2) God's word is a light on our path (Psalm 119:105) as written " Your word is a lamp for my feet, a light on my path". We do not just celebrate Him on His birthday, but having fellowship with Jesus for 365 days of a year. How ? read the word of God and let His word guide your way everyday.
(3) He is the great light, you are a small light (The people walking in darkness have seen a great light - Isaiah 9:2a) We just reflect from a great light and bring the light to the world. Be humble yourself before the Lord, what we have today let's give it back to the Lord by serving Him faithfully. Where He calls you, He provides you to accomplish the Divine call. What is the Divine calling from God on you today ? Remember, we are just a small light, Jesus is a great light. Let's reflect His light!
(4) Bringing light to the darkness "For the Son of Man came to seek and to save the lost". (Luke 19:10) Bring light to the darkness. Jesus came to the world not to judge but to save people. Love came down to bring peace and joy. Learn and follow Jesus' sample today, do we bring peace and joy to others, or just bring judgement and critic, disagreement, hatred, backstab..... ?
Merry Christmas & happy new year
