2018 Advent Devotional – January 5

John 1: (1-9) 10-18

… well I declare, have you seen the like?

So, have you seen the light?  Are you showing others the light, or are you just “Waiting for the Light”? Over the past months (years) I have seen a lot of people covering the light that is Jesus, from snarky comments on Facebook, all out brawls in the street, or ridiculous claims about others to further whatever agenda they like.

Jesus was sent to us to be the light, and we were commissioned to help show that light to others. John 1:14 states: “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

“. . . have you seen the like?”  It’s hard not to these days, but how you react and deal with these situations is what’s most important. Showing God’s love and mercy is what we need to be doing. In this New Year, take a long hard look at yourself, and the people around you, and make any necessary changes so that others can see the true light that is Jesus.
