Fw: He comes with Light

Isaiah 9:2  The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
    on them has light shone.
Matthew 4:16  "the people dwelling in darkness
    have seen a great light,
and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death,
    on them a light has dawned."
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.
At Christmas time lights appear on homes, humble and great, as an expression of the One who was foretold in Isaiah and reported in Matthew and John.  He is the One who brings light to our personal darkness.  He was with the Father from the beginning, when light was spoken into natural creation and He came to bring light to our inner person.  We dress our homes in light to celebrate Him and we welcome Him within our hearts to be filled with the light that is also life.

"Death is inevitable.  Life is a choice!"

John 11:25
Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in me, though he die, yet shall he live."
