Christmas Greetings from the Griswalds
When Jesus spoke again to the people, he 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 niv
During Christmas season, Anne and I often ride through nearby neighborhoods, enjoying the Christmas lights. Every so often we’ll come across a truly extravagant display covering the house and yard and trees, and Anne will say, “Now, that really is over-the-top there!” And I’ll say, “Yeah, bless their hearts.” (That’s a Southern gentleman’s way of saying, “You know, it really is pitiful, isn’t it?”) But whatever the case, I’ve got good news for you if you’re one of those who has all those lights. You see, lights are an important symbol of the meaning of Christmas. Jesus entered this world to be the Light in the darkness, and God created the original light show. After all, the angels appeared to the shepherds, and whenever angels appear, they often have this dazzling array of light around them. And then there was the star over Bethlehem that the wise men were drawn to. What a light!
So the next time you go driving around looking at the lights of Christmas, remember the coming of Jesus, “the Light of the world.”
