In these darkest days of winter, we discover a special appreciation for all forms of light. We have a fascination for the glitter of decorations, the sparkle of snow, the glow of a candle or a warm fire. Something deep within us has an instinctive attraction to the light.
From Genesis through Revelation the Bible speaks of this radiant energy in its visible and Invisible expressions. It is in Scripture that we learn how the prophets foretold the coming of One wh
o would be a Guiding Light for all mankind. With the birth and life of Jesus, all people could know that Divinity was present in their midst. “The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light.” Isaiah 9:2
By his word and living example, Jesus taught that we have no need we seek our Good in the outer realm. Turning inward for communion, we too may come to know God through the insight, intuition, inspiration, that we once called our own. In this awareness, His outstreaming Good will is revealed on earth as it is in heaven. “God who commanded the light to shine out of the darkness hath shined in our hearts…” 2 Corinthians 4:6.
For this the true Gift of Christmas, we praise His Holy Name forever. Amen.
