advent – nineteen

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change. (James 1:17)

Six days until Christmas and as one drives around the streets, the cities and towns are alight. There are lights, lights everywhere. They look so beautiful, and some displays are very impressive.

There is something about lights that draw us and make us gasp in delight, especially when contrasted with the darkness of the night.

The Father of lights, however, has done something far more impressive. He created the lights in the heavens that declare his glory.

But an even greater work than this: he has given us the most beautiful of gifts, the Light of the world, in the person of the babe of Bethlehem.
