Light - Advent Devotional @ Walton United Church, Oakville, Ontario

When all is said and done, when in two weeks from now, the presents are opened and the dinner is eaten, we are left with this certainty: God is light. He shines in our darkness.

Dear Lord, radiant  God,
While we may be surrounded by the sparkling lights of houses, trees and stores, remind us that your light is the only true light; the light that can cut through any darkness, reaching ever corner of our souls. 

John 1:1-5

1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things came into being through him, and without him not one thing came into being. What has come into being 4 in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
