Have you ever felt that your life was encircled by darkness? The human race is stuck in darkness. Oh, we do everything to turn on a light in our lives: we buy the latest telephones, we eat the latest diet, we chase the latest technological advance and follow with wide-eyed excitement the latest adventures of idols such as the Kardashians.
The ancient prophet is aware of the human quest for a light in their darkness. Here is the good news:
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (Isaiah 9:2)
Where does this light come from? This light is a gift. It is not generated by human action. It comes from beyond. For followers of Jesus, the light was Jesus. Have you seen the Light of the World? – Ron Friesen
