Have you ever sat in an otherwise dark living room and enjoyed the soft glow of your Christmas tree lit in December? Or have you enjoyed the still light of a fire in your fireplace late in the evening? One of the wonders of our world is that even the smallest light always dispels darkness, yet darkness can never push back to overcome the light. Today’s reading points us again to Jesus, the true light of the world who rescues us from darkness.
- John 1:4-5
- Watch for the Light, 76-77
- How clearly do you remember your life before you received God’s grace through faith in Jesus? How has his Truth changed the way you believe, think, speak, or act compared to your life before knowing him?
- John 3:19 says, “The light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil.” What worldly or temporary things do you find yourself tempted to love more than the true Light of the World? How can trusting completely in Jesus overcome the temptations of darkness? (See John 8:12.)
Pray that the Lord would give you the faith and strength to walk in the light of Christ, and praise Him for being the “life [that] was the life of men” who came and saved you.
