28: Christmas – Christmas Lights – Jesus is the Light

 December 8th 
Christmas Lights 
Jesus is the Light 

 Later Jesus talked to the people again. He said, “I am the Light of the world. The person who follows me will never live in darkness. He will have the light that gives life.” John 8:12 

People put lights everywhere at Christmas. You see them on houses and trees. Some people even have lights on their jewelry or neckties! 

Why all the lights? 

To say Jesus is the Light of the World. 

Light is like Jesus in many ways. Light is very special because you cannot make it dirty. Jesus came to the world and lived around people who did things wrong, but he never did anything wrong. Light can always be seen no matter how dark it is. Jesus is always with you no matter where you are, what you’ve done, or what’s happened to you. Jesus shines his light of hope like a flashlight in the dark. 

Without Jesus, you can never be good enough for God to let you into heaven or to have a relationship with him. That is a very dark, hopeless thought. Jesus came to be the way for you to go to heaven. Jesus came to make you God’s friend. That is a very light, hopeful thought. How can you tell someone Jesus is the Light?
