The Light Shines in the Darkness


Father?

Yes, my child?

This is a very dark place that you have sent me.

Yes, I know. You are the Light.

The people here are lost.

Yes, I know. You are the Way.

They believe lies about you.

I know. You are the Truth.

There is the stench of death all around.

You are the Life. Once upon a time they walked in my light but they chose their own way and now they wander lost in darkness and deception and death. But since before they fell from grace there has been a plan, a plan to redeem what was lost and to defeat the darkness.

I am the plan, yes, Father?

Yes, my child, you are the plan.

“The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him. He is before all things, and in him all things hold together.  And he is the head of the body, the church; he is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything he might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him, and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through his blood, shed on the cross.”  Colossians 15-20

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind.  The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”  John 1:1-5

Have a beautiful Christmas. May you spend it in the Light of Jesus Christ.
