Christmas Eve: The Coming Light

Christmas Eve: The Coming Light

Life is a miracle and a mystery 

Like living by the sea, we have come accustom to the beauty and miracle of LIFE  

Isaiah 9:1-2 Nevertheless, there will be no more gloom for those who were in distress. In the past he humbled the land of Zebulun and the land of Naphtali, but in the future he will honor Galilee of the nations, by the Way of the Sea, beyond the Jordan— The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. 

God is at Work – but questions remain  

Isaiah 9:6 For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. 

Isaiah 9:6 And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. 

Clarity brings more Mystery:
Wonderful Counselor  
Mighty God  
Everlasting Father  
Prince of Peace  

John1:9-12 The one who is the true light, who gives light to everyone, was coming into the world. He came into the very world he created, but the world didn’t recognize him. He came to his own people, and even they rejected him. But to all who believed him and accepted him, he gave the right to become children of God. 

Belief is a simple moment  

Belief is a life time of light 

Jesus brings light, sometimes just enough to keep up believing  

This Christmas you may know that God is at work even when questions remain 

A light has been given to you
