Behold the Light!

Romans 13:14 “but put on the Lord Jesus Christ…..”

December is a wonderful month and a great time of year! This year we have added a 1pm Advent Service on 12/6, 12/13, and 12/20. It will be another opportunity to gather and worship our King who has come as a baby and will come as the Judge of the living and the dead. The theme for these services is “Behold the Light”!” As we stay awake and prepared for His second coming, we can continue to focus on our Savior, Jesus Christ, and put Him on by staying connected to His Word and promises and by receiving His body and blood in our Lord’s Supper. He is the Light that has come in to the darkness and our message can be “Joy to the World, the Lord has come!” What good news this is for all of us! We can realize how the Light of the world has given us the ability to put Him on and be lights that can boldly and together shine and continue to point to Jesus in all that we say and do! The day after Thanksgiving is when our family goes and gets our real tree. Some years I pick out a good one and other years I don’t do so well. This year the tree I picked out is a little short. The good thing is that we put it up right away and then enjoy putting on the lights. The lights definitely add a nice look to any kind of tree. Well, we are all different types of trees that have been given various talents and abilities and by putting on Christ, the Light, we can all have a nicer look that radiates and brings Jesus to all those around us. May God’s peace and blessings be with you all at Christmas time and every day of the year! Enjoy the Savior who has come and enjoy putting Him on each day!
