The Great Light of Christmas

24 12 2013

Isaiah 9:2 The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined.

 

An artist once made a sketch of a wintry twilight. The trees were laden with snow; and a dreary-looking house, lonely and desolate, stood in the midst of the drifted field. It was a bleak and depressing picture. Then the artist took some yellow chalk and with a few quick strokes put a light in one window of that home. The effect was almost magical. The entire scene was transformed into a vision of comfort and cheer.

 

Likewise, the birth of Christ brought the luster of hope to this dark world. You’d think people would have rejoiced and eagerly received the Saviour. Instead, they lived on in their own dismal depravity, and with wicked hands they crucified the Prince of Life. The second person of the Trinity had come to illuminate them spiritually, but they “loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil” (John 3:19).

 

On this Christmas Day let us rejoice that Jesus the true Light visited this sin-smitten planet 2,000 years ago to cast the joyous rays of His salvation upon our pathway.

 

See: John 1:4-9

Merry Christmas
