In the tender compassion of our God the dawn from on high shall break upon us, to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death, and to guide our feet into the way of peace. (Luke 1:78-79)
In a sense, we all have some degree of darkness in our lives. Problems, fears and uncertainty can sometimes cause us to stumble on the dark road on which we travel. Two thousand years ago, the world waited for the arrival of the Savior, the Light of the World, Jesus Christ. Although it’s a historical fact that He did indeed arrive and was born in a stable in Bethlehem, many of us still need to welcome Him into our own lives. It doesn’t matter whether we actively practice our faith or have fallen away, we can ALL stand to get closer to Our Lord. At this holy time of the year, let’s make a promise to welcome the Savior in our lives and ask Him to remain with us. By doing so, we’ll be able to walk in the light and safely navigate the treacherous roads of life.
The glory of the Lord will be revealed, and all mankind will see the saving power of God. (Isaiah 40:5)
