11 December – Light in the Darkness

The message of Christmas isn’t about escapism or pretending that everything’s ok when it isn’t. It’s not about tinsel and glitter as a distraction from the world’s problems. It’s about a light that shines in the darkness.

The prophet Isaiah had to face up to the darkness of the state his nation was in before he could see the light of God’s salvation. Into what darkness do you hope the light of Christ will shine this Christmas, whether for you or for our world?
