There’s only four more sleeps until Christmas Day. I guess I better get out and finish up some shopping!
Or maybe I need to modify my decorations. Here are a few more great decorations to start of the week. The first one was voted Best Lights by the Surly Birds (whoever they are). The second is a take off on one of the pictures from last week.
Well, that’s pretty creative stuff. And since we are speaking of lights. Take a peek over if John. Right in the beginning of the chapter. It talks about Light – the light of the world. The Christ, who was born to show others the way.
John 1:1-10 (New International Version)
1In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2He was with God in the beginning.
3Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. 4In him was life, and that life was the light of men. 5The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood[a] it.
6There came a man who was sent from God; his name was John. 7He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all men might believe. 8He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light. 9The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.
10He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.
John, is like the neighbor in the picture above – pointing to the true lights. That’s also the Christmas light I want to point to. I wonder if our lives said “Ditto” to the true light how the world would change. I think this guy is on to something – pointing at the true light. Lets be reflectors, lets be pointers, lets say ‘Ditto’ – lets be witnesses.
Merry Christmas Y’all
