Have you ever tried to walk in real darkness? Even in a place you know very well, like your own house, there’s a good chance you’re going to bump into something or trip and fall—or step on a particularly painful toy.
Walking in physical darkness can mean bumps and bruises. Walking in spiritual darkness has far worse consequences. You see them all around you every day.
So Isaiah 9:2 is one of my favorite Christmas verses: “The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned” (NIV).
Having Jesus in your life is the difference between walking in the pitch dark and walking in the full light of day. The people who experienced the first Christmas and followed Him during His ministry had the Light in person. Today we find it in the pages of Scripture and it lives in us, ready to be shared with others. “You are the light of the world,” Jesus said (Matthew 5:14a, NIV).
Thank you for not hiding your light and for sharing it with people all around the world through your support of Biblica. Because of you, the Light will dawn this Christmas in the lives of countless men, women, and children for the first time, and they will never have to walk in darkness again.
