I saw a commercial on TV advertising a new seasonal reality show. It is called “The Great Christmas Light Fight”. It is a contest to see which family has as the most outlandish Christmas lighting in the country. I’m sure those displays will attract a lot of folks who will go out of their way to visit those particular illuminated properties.
And yet even the most phenomenal Christmas lighting display doesn’t hold a candle to the real Light of the World and the real reason for the season of Christmas.
The Apostle John writes in the introduction to his gospel, “The true light that gives light to every man was coming into the world.” And then later on Jesus Himself notes, “I am the Light of the World”.
What light are you attracted to, the artificial twinkling lights adorning each home, or the Light that shines in the darkness – Jesus the Christ? Joy to the World the Lord has come!
Our prayer is that you would be blessed and strengthened by the power of Jesus Christ and that you will live a life of abundance in fellowship, joy and liberty. Grace Valley church is here for you. It is not only a building. It is a fellowship of believers coming together to declare the glory of the Lord and celebrate Jesus as King. We study the Word, practice what we learn and in the process grow together. May God richly bless you!
