There’s a cool house down the road from my house here in Petal that’s got a programmed Christmas light show. You can pull up to their house, turn your car radio to a certain station, listen to the music, and see the lights flash in rhythm to the songs being played.
It’s pretty cool.
I’ve always been a sucker for Christmas lights. I remember as young child that was always one of my favorite things to do, to go with the family and look at Christmas lights. Loved it then, love it now. That’s one of the many reasons why I love this time of year.
I thought about that, as I read today’s reading from Job 33: 29-30:
“Behold, God does all these things, twice, three times, with a man, to bring back his soul from the pit, that he may be lighted with the light of life.
I talked yesterday about how God has a plan in all this. God knows what He is doing and He has a plan, not just for all our lives, but for creation, redemption, and all the world. I think of that again when I read what it says in Job. God will bring us back from the pit. And they will be lighted with the light of life.
Even those those words were spoken to Job, who do I think of when I read that?
The one that it talks about in John 1: 4-5:
In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Jesus. He is the light. He is the light that overcomes the darkness. He is the light of the world. And He is the light of of lives.
Think about that during Christmas. Think of that during light shows. Think about during all this time. Light has come. And that light is Jesus. Remember. Remember that.
Light has come. And light WILL drive out the darkness.
