Jesus the Light of the World -John 1: 6-8; 19 -28
3rd Sunday of Advent
Key Verses: 6-8 There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
Like John in our Bible lesson this week we are witnesses to the light. As we eagerly await Christmas we see so many forms of decorative lights, and how pretty they are to look at. They give us so much joy to see them because they lift our spirits in terms of what is to come. These lights remind us that Christmas is around the corner and the reason we celebrate that special day. Jesus is the light in our lesson this week, and he came to light our way to our Heavenly Father. In John 8: 12 Jesus said: “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” So this season let us be witnesses to others so they can be believers in God’s love, joy and grace for us.
Have a blessed week
