Today’s Passage:  Isaiah 9:2-7

For many today, darkness in their lives is a reality.  Darkness comes from many sources…loneliness, fear, loss, and, yes, sin.  If we are honest, darkness is indeed real in our world but we have a choice.  Each day, we have a choice to not only know that Light dawned in that stable so long ago – a really good choice if you believe that “nothing is impossible with God” (Luke 1:37), but the courage to live out this choice in our lives.  The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who lived in a land of deep darkness—on them light has shined…For a child has been born for us, a son given to us…and he is named Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace!”

His name is Jesus…Savior of the world!  Get to know him better and the Light will shine more brightly in your life!!  It takes courage because of all the darkness around us…the choice is yours!!  Merry Christmas!!
