“You are thelight of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden.Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; a light has dawned on those living in the land of darkness. (Isaiah 9:2)

The unfolding of your words gives light. (Psalm 119:130)
You, Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light. (Psalm 18:28)
“Believe in the light while you have the light, so that you may become children of light.” – Jesus (John 12:36)
The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light, and the Lamb is its lamp. (Revelation 21:23)
I saw that wisdom is better than folly, just as lightis better than darkness. (Ecclesiastes 2:13)
We celebrate the Light of the World when we decorate our trees and houses with lights each Christmas. What a dark world this would be without thejoy and light that Christmas brings, so ignore the critics who love darkness and shine your light!
Follow along each day during the holiday season as I post a different name of Jesus and Christmas ornament you can download to decorate and hang on your CHRISTmas tree! It’s a wonderful way to discover who Jesus Christ is, and what His birth at Christmas means to each of us.
