Light breaks through the darkness. The very first spoken words of creation were “Let there be light.” Before the sun, moon, and stars, He created light. Before the waters or the skies or the plants or animals, God made light.
Without light we find darkness. And darkness continues to permeate our world. It is darkness we sometimes feel most strongly during the season of Christmas. Wintertime brings less sunshine, and a coldness we often associate with darkness.
From the beginning God desired to bring light to the darkness. The night seasons were never forever. And for so many years God was silent, but light suddenly burst forth! Just as the people of God waited for God to rescue them, over and over again, we find ourselves waiting.
Let’s read through passages focusing on the Light of God and His promise of a Savior. I’m ready to see the light in the middle of my darkness. Are you?
