I’ve been writing about sharing faith at Christmas. It’s really interesting how people put up all sorts of lights around their houses. It’s a trend that’s really catching on, (I’m sure the power companies are really happy!) more and more.
Lights are a good topic to introduce Jesus. There are lots of links with Jesus and light; the star, Jesus the light of the world, the dazzling angels who announce various things about Jesus, not to mention the great prophecy from Isaiah 9 “the people who walked in darkness have seen a great light”.
It’s good that we put lights up, it’s also good if we use them to point towards the source of all light; Jesus. When Jesus does enter into someone’s life he certainly lights it up – you can see it on their face!
May it be that we point others to the most vivid light of all.
