Yesterday morning, I walked into the guest room to open the blinds for our three kitties, Little Alice and our two Maine Coons, Skippy and Ruby.
It wasn’t quite 7am but I was too late. Alice got tired of waiting. She was ready for sunshine, birdwatching and snickering at the dogs as they passed by on a leash. She would never consent to that! She’s our very independent but sweet baby.
Sometimes, we need Sonshine in our lives. Instead of being gloomy, let’s open God’s Word and see what light and joy He has to share with us today!
Just as the cats delight in sitting in the sunbeam, let’s delight in the Light of the World – The Lord Jesus Christ through His Word, the Bible.
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
“Thy word is a lamp unto my feet,
and a light unto my path.”
“Jesus answered and said unto them saying, I am the light of the world; he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness but shall have the light of life.”
Last night, I put up the Christmas tree but haven’t added the decorations yet. I love to see the lights shining brightly, reminding me that He is the light of the world. It also reminds me to allow His light to shine through me.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in heaven.”
Tonight I will decorate the tree but I am anxious to have Christmas lights on our porch as well in order to share the Light of the World with our neighbors. What an opportunity to share the Gospel! I am so thankful He came as a babe in the manger knowing He would become the sacrificial lamb of God that we may be saved. This lamb, however did not stay dead. He arose from the dead; conquering death. We may have everlasting life in Heaven because He lives.
What did John the Baptist say when he saw Jesus coming?
“Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.”
Perhaps I should find a lamb decoration to put on the tree! I must get busy decorating the Christmas tree so enjoy the lights and remember who they represent.
