The Light of Christmas

Sharing the Peace of God With Others

Luke 1:76-79

 

Synopsis: The Light of Christmas shines bright because the spark of HOPE has set the kindling of PEACE ablaze.  Soon we will see what the logs of JOY can do when all are fanned into flames by LOVE.  It is the season of Advent and we are celebrating the birth of our Savior Jesus Christ. 

      People who live in the shadows need the spark of HOPE that comes from the light of God in Christ Jesus.  That spark would be short lived if not for the kindling of PEACE.  Together they start a fire burning that will light the way for others.  Today we celebrate the PEACE of God born in Christ Jesus.  The PEACE of God is not a place but rather a journey.  It is not defined by the absence of things by but rather the presence of Christ.  Yes, Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem, but we know He still lives and journeys with us throughout our lives.
