Festival of lights?
19. December 2021

We need light otherwise we walk in the dark. We need it for orientation and to find our way home safely. We long for it as it warms and makes us happy. 

Thousands of lights are glowing on the trees, in windows, in gardens and on the facades of our houses. They give us joy and enlighten the darkness. 

During this dark season, we celebrate Christmas. A festival of lights? No, because we do not celebrate the lights – we celebrate Jesus as the true light of the world. 

YES because every single light wants to point towards the one big light which we celebrate these days: Jesus Christ.

And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart. 14 And I will be found of you, saith the LORD: and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the LORD; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

Jeremie 29:13-14

Isaiah the Prophet told us: The people in darkness will shine a “huge light”. And he continued: “A child is born, a son is given to us.” Those who are on the way with him will find their way home. 

Scripture of the week: Isaiah 9:1-6
