Christmas lights covering broken shingles and graffiti, make our neighborhood sparkle with beauty when the sun goes down. A little light in the darkness can make anything gleam with hope.
Jesus did come. He was born in a broken neighborhood, in the midst of political turmoil. He brought hope to a world in desperate need of it.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” John 8:12
We rejoice because now our brokenness can be filled with his life giving light.
This Christmas, let your light shine in the darkness.
