Is it going to be a Blue Christmas for you this year? Even as I write these words I can hear Elvis singing about it being "a blue Christmas without you".
Yes, without Him, the incarnate Son of God, Christmas pales and really has no lasting meaning. When Christ came He brought light, the Light of life, to a dark world. His sacrificial death and glorious resurrection offered a sure and steadfast hope to those who trusted Him.
The picture I've included on this post reminds me of the light that Christ brings when He is given room in the busyness and messiness of our lives.
The "blues" turns to light, the true Light, when Jesus is introduced to the picture. Please make room for the King of Glory this Christmas.
He's waiting at the door...
"There it was...the true Light [was then] coming into the world [the genuine, perfect, steadfast Light] that illumines every person." - John 1:9 (The Amplified Bible)
