Seems like Christmas was ages ago, doesn’t it? Well, it was just 12 days ago, and today we celebrate the day when the three kings found the baby Jesus, after being guided by the star to Bethlehem.
“And the word became flesh, and made His dwelling among us, and we saw His glory, the glory as of the Father’s only Son, full of grace and truth.” ~ John 1:14
Today we don’t have a giant star leading us straight to Jesus, but the light of God’s love is there for anyone who believes in it.
“What came to be through Him [Jesus] was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.” ~ John 1:5
We are called to share this light with others, and to help others realize the beauty, grace, and mercy of God. This is definitely something I strive to do in my own life, and I hope that you do too. It is not enough to just believe in God, and His everlasting love and mercy. We have to live our lives as examples to people who may not know God. We have to show them God’s mercy and love so they can be guided to the light of Christ, just like the three kings.
What did you do yesterday to spread the light of God, and what can you do today, and tomorrow, to brighten the whole world with the love and hope of Christ’s birth?
