WEEK 1: LIGHT & DARK
In the shadow of darkness, a light has dawned.
Tuesday | December 1
Isaiah 60:1-3 Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you. For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the LORD will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you. And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.
Light has the quality of attraction. Light a candle at your table or desk today, see if it does not make the space more welcoming. Fires and lights are places of warmth and conversation. They are the places where light happens. This is what the glory of God is: a light so warm and bright that we all want to come to it. This is the light we are waiting for. Pray this morning that you and your community would be like the light of Jesus, the kind of warm presence that draws the outsider in.
