Walking in the light

I well remember as a child in the early 1970’s, during what were then fairly regular power cuts, sitting at home by candlelight and keeping warm in front of a paraffin heater. As a child it seemed quite fun but the reality was that it was inconvenient and tedious. Great was the rejoicing when the power and the light came back on. It made all the difference. So may I encourage you to make the most of this Advent season to rejoice in a Saviour who is the Light of the World, and who has and does rescue us from sin and darkness.

There are many familiar readings that we hear over this Advent and Christmas period and one of them is from the prophet Isaiah. So let God speak to our hearts again as we reflect on those powerful and life changing words from Isaiah 9, ‘The people walking in darkness have seen a great light, on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned’. May those of us who have seen the light celebrate our salvation and, as we do so, may that light be clearly seen in us by those still walking in darkness.

Jesus truly does make all the difference.

James
