Light of the World

It’s CHRISTMAS COUNTDOWN 2016 here on GUWG where from now until December 25 we’re preparing our hearts for the arrival of the Savior of the World.

The birth of Jesus brought God’s LIGHT into this dark world. Here’s what the Bible says:

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 1:4-5)

Here’s what Jesus himself said:

I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life. (John 8:12)

I have come into the world as a light, so that no one who believes in me should stay in darkness. (John 12:46)

Want to stop stumbling and bumbling around in the dark? Follow Jesus. And then LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE. The world desperately needs it right now. As Jesus said:

You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
