As the sunlight began to fade in the room and the lesson was coming to its close, I flicked the light switch and dramatically proclaimed, “Let there be light.” I remember wondering what the next week’s program could be about since we had so thoroughly covered all there was to say. Now, more than 70 years have passed and the depth of God’s Word has not been plumbed. Thankfully, God’s mercies are new every morning.
Each year we take a new look into the wondrous coming of the Light into a darkened world. The Old Testament is filled with the promises of One to come who would crush the head of Satan. One who would bless all nations. One who would be born in the line of David and rule on his throne eternally. One who would be very Son of God by a miraculous birth, would shepherd His people, live sinlessly showing what the Father is like. One who would die to save His people from the curse of sin, which is death. One who would rise from the dead, would ascend to His heavenly glory. One who has promised to return one day for His own and will have total victory over Satan and evil, will establish a new heaven and a new earth. Oh, the glory of it all!!
"For your were once darkness, but now your are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light." --- Ephesians 5:8
We wish you a blessed Christmas. Rejoice!
