My friend, Bill, wrote this post today. I had been thinking about writing a similar post about light for a bit, so I thought I would go ahead with it.
Last Friday night we drove over through Pigeon Forge to Sevierville to see Shadrach’s Christmas light show. This is a drive-thru experience where the lights are synced to the music. For the low price of $20, we were able to see this after hearing about it for a couple of years. It was well worth the price.
After that we drove to the Krispy Kreme in Pigeon Forge and saw all of the Winterfest lights. This is where the entire city of Pigeon Forge is draped in Christmas lights.
We enjoyed it, but the thought that kept popping up was this:
All of these lights point to the fact that Christmas is about the Light.
Jesus is the Light of the world. The darkness doesn’t comprehend the light. It hates the light. Why? Because light affects darkness. It changes the darkness. Darkness does not remain dark when light enters it.
That’s what Christmas is all about. The Light entering the world. Changing it forever. Repelling the darkness.
Our goal? To continue shining that Light into the world.
Are you shining the Light into the world?
