The Gospel of John proclaims that the light was coming into all the world
The light shines in the darkness,
and the darkness can not overcome it.
The true light, which enlightens everyone,
was coming into the world.
—John 1:5, 9
God begins with a musical idea,
and then sings it.
The song shines in the darkness.
Everything in this universe is God's song.
It's a love song.
Listen for God singing the world into being.
Look for the light shining in the music.
Notice this cosmic song, this act of Creation,
rising in you, unfolding, radiating,
shining in the darkness.
The true light that enlightens everyone
is coming into the world.
How wonderful to be part of this singing the light into being! This is the invitation to Christmas. We see the Christ-Light, we are offered this Light, we are this Light. It is Jesus' gift to us. May we use it well and offer it to the whole world for the glory of God.
Let us live in and of that Light.
