The Twenty-sixth Day of Advent
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
John 1:1-5 NASB
Where light is, darkness cannot be. The beginning of John’s gospel reads like a study in the transitive property. (Remember A=B, B=C, so A=C?). God spoke the universe into existence. That Word was more than just a directive, it was by very nature God. God’s light is life. It is this light that shines for all to see. This light that dawns on the eve of Christ’s birth is available to all. The world that has turned away from the light will never comprehend this gift, this life, or the love that is offered freely. As you ready yourself for the next 48 hours of family, food, and festivities. Talk about the love that brought the light into the world. By that light and love we all have access to our great redeemer.
