Share the Light- Count Down Day 22

 Count Down Day 22

I love the lights at Christmas. The candles, the trees, the outdoor decorations all remind me of the Light of the world, Jesus.  The thing is all those are temporary light, but the light that Jesus brings is eternally bright. I mean we were walking in darkness in this world until we realized that Jesus is the Light of the World with the help of the Holy Spirit enlightening us to understand the Bible.  Now if we had never had a Bible God would tell us another way. Maybe that is one reason we like to light up our homes, or maybe not but it’s something to think about as you read the scriptures below. He took the darkness and shined light into our lives. He does this every day if we keep our mind on Him. He will keep in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Him, remember?


In the beginning the Word already existed.  The Word was with God, and the Word was God. He existed in the beginning with God. God created everything through him,  and nothing was created except through him. The Word gave life to everything that was created, and his life brought light to everyone. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it. God sent a man, John the Baptist, to tell about the light so that everyone might believe because of his testimony.  John himself was not the light; he was simply a witness to tell about the light. The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.

He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. They are reborn—not with a physical birth resulting from human passion or plan, but a birth that comes from God. John 1:1-13

So when Jesus came into the world as a baby He came to bring that light to us. All we do is believe the Truth, the Way and the Life, or Light of the World.

So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father’s one and only Son. John 1:14

Think about the whole picture today, Jesus came, he grew, he lead Bible Studies, He shared miracles and wisdom, fed so many people then died on the cross so we could be forgiven for our sins and live in eternity with Christ Jesus.  Wow, that is something to ponder.

In His Love,
