Candles Symbol of Christmas

December 7, 2018

Candles are a tradition of Christmas. Before electricity they were used to light Christmas trees, as well as light for the home after dark. Today, we use them as decorations. We scent them with Christmas smells, pine, peppermint and others to make our homes smell like Christmas.

The Christian meaning of the candle is that Jesus is the light of the world. We no longer walk in darkness of sin when we accept Jesus as our Savior.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

Jesus Light of the World

December 8, 2017

Christmas lights are so beautiful. Darkness falls and even the most barren property, the scrawniest tree, the ugly streets become a sparkling sight to see. Some people spend a lot of money for the lights of Christmas. Others may only have a little string of lights or a few candles. The mall and shops are full of glowing lights. There are people who refuse to light their home or have a tree.However a person may feel about decorating for Chrismas they still enjoy the sight of what others have done.

Jesus is the light of the world. His light shines in the hearts of people who believe in Him and have trusted Him as their Savior. Others receive the benefits He brings into the world. He blesses the just and the unjust.This season when you enjoy the decorations and especially the lights think about Jesus and the light He brings to your life.

John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.

God’s Time

November 6, 2016

Genesis 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.

Did you remember to set your clock back? When the time changes twice a year from standard to daylight saving time and back again, our bodies take a few days to get on schedule. Many of us would like to see the time not change. Man decided we can change time but there is still 24 hours in a day, created by God. The sun rises and sets, there is light and darkness and seasons. 

Sometimes God may laugh at us thinking we can think we change time but the real change will come when we walk on the streets of gold and there will be no night there. Jesus will be the light. 

Revelations 23-27 And the city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon, to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the light thereof. And the nations of them which are saved shall walk in the light of it: and the kings of the earth do bring their glory and honour into it. And the gates of it shall not be shut at all by day: for there shall be no night there

Brighten Your Corner

October 28, 2015

Do not wait until some deed of greatness you may do,Do not wait to shed your light afar;

To the many duties ever near you now be true,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Refrain:

Brighten the corner where you are!

Brighten the corner where you are!

Someone far from harbor you may guide across the bar;

Brighten the corner where you are!

Just above are clouded skies that you may help to clear,

Let not narrow self your way debar;

Though into one heart alone may fall your song of cheer,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Here for all your talent you may surely find a need,

Here reflect the bright and Morning Star;

Even from your humble hand the Bread of Life may feed,

Brighten the corner where you are.

Ina D. Ogden published 1913 (you can listen to it  on Utube) 

This is an old happy song written over 100 years ago, but it will still lift your spirits today. The message in it is so true. Maybe you have a friend who is going through a hard time, a phone call, email or sometimes just a smile or a shoulder to cry on makes all the difference in the world to that person. You can always pray with someone. 

It is our responsibility as Christians to let our light shine brightly and reflect the Love of Jesus to a hurting world.

Matthew 5:16  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

SAD

January 7, 2015

Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD is the medical term for lack of natural sunlight. In the Northern hemisphere we are now in the winter season, the time of year that SAD becomes a problem.
Most parts of the world have three low-sunlight seasons. Some people have proved more susceptible to Seasonal Affective Disorder. Those with higher risk factors include women, those who live farthest from the equator (Eskimos, for example) and those whose family histories include members who have suffered from seasonal affective issues. This causes physical,
mental disorders and depression, and should be taken seriously. It could reach feelings of isolation, coupled with severe hopelessness and, perhaps, suicidal thoughts. Doctors suggest artificial light, extra vitamin D and even medication for depression.
SAD is a good acronym for this disorder. There is additional “treatment” that should help in any situation. The Christian already has the answer and the unbeliever needs to know. Jesus said that He is the light of the world. If you are a Christian then look to Him for spiritual light. If you do not know Him as your Savior, ask Him to come into your heart and life today. He will help you get through times of sadness.

John 8:12
Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world:he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
