Light of Christmas
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works,
and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
My husband and I are thanking the Lord for the Lord's faithfulness this last year. We were all given so many opportunities to trust, rest and praise Him. One of our favorite verses has been, “And He will be the stability of your times.” Isaiah 33:6.
Have you noticed people are longing for truth and good news? Aren’t we all in need of a good report, a message of hope? In Numbers 13:1-33 ten spies returned from the land of Canaan with little faith in the doom and gloom report they gave. Joshua and Caleb brought back a good report and believed that God would help them succeed. God is calling us to His Good News and to shine His light in this world. Perhaps it is precisely in the dark days of a year like this that we will see the light like never before.
David Jeremiah shares, “Be the light in someone else’s darkness.” I love that. There is a whole lot of darkness out there that sure could use our light. Let’s be Joshua’s and Caleb’s this Christmas season bringing the good news of Jesus Christ. Jesus is a joy bringer! “Behold, the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people. For unto us this day in the town of David is born a Savior” Luke 2:10
