Inspired by . . . Seeking the Light: An Advent Journey

"Let there be light," is the first utterance we ever hear from God. Of all the things God has made, Light was the first.

'ôr (ore) meaning illumination

Webster lists more than 26 definitions of Light as it is used in the Bible. Far beyond simply an ethereal matter, which God speaks into existence in the first verses of Genesis, we learn that Light is also understanding and knowledge. It is wisdom and joy. Comfort and deliverance. Light is life and Light is the Gospel.

Most importantly, we learn:

Jesus Christ is the Light of the world!

"I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life." (John 8:12)
Jesus Christ the center and beginning of all things; the great Illuminator has come, and IS coming soon.

Thus, Advent is a time to celebrate the first coming of Christ: His birth. Yet it is also a time to rekindle the excitement and expectation we should always feel in our spirit, a time to reignite our anticipation of His return!

Over the next three weeks we are going to seek the Light in three profound ways:

  • Jesus Christ the Light of the World: the wait is over, salvation has come!
  • Jesus Christ a Light to the Gentiles: living as children of the Light
  • Jesus Christ the Light of Hope: rekindling the flame, the hope of His return

This is a journey we take together and I would love to hear your insights as we begin Seeking the Light.

Blessings on your Advent,
