The incredible lightness of Christmas

Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace. Luke 1:78

Jesus, the Light of the world, offers peace to souls impacted by the lingering darkness. He makes His presence evident when the shadow of death falls. He guides, protects, illuminates, warms, and ignites us with His light.

Lord, for all of us with broken hearts and broken lives, living in darkened places in this broken world, let Your light break upon us.
