The Christmas season is here, with all of its joys. But amidst the lights and songs and cheer, we are privileged to once again rest in the core of the season: God has kept His promise to reveal Himself in a redemptive way. Into the darkness of this broken world light has come with the power to heal and transform our lives.
John, the last of the Apostles, reflects back on the coming of the light and reminds us powerfully that, as God began all creation by His Word, so also that Word – God Himself – brings light and life to all who believe.
It is our privilege during this Advent season to learn from John, to reflect deeply on our Savior, and to rest in the joy and peace that is found in Him alone.
