Lights on the house, lights on the bushes, lights on the tree. Light is more than a thing of beauty, it is a symbol at Christmas time.
“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin” (1 John 1:7).
Don’t you love the picture of Jesus laying in a manager with the Star of Bethlehem hanging above him? This light broke through dark nights to show men where he lay (Matthew 2:9-10). Jesus and light are often found together in scripture.
In this season I pray we seek the light and walk in it. Walking in the light, admittedly, is not easy. The continual devotion it takes to walk in the light takes a God given endurance.
I love PTM HS student, Marvell’s, exhortation in his devotion from 2014,
“Don’t be afraid to allow life to push you beyond yourself…life teaches us mental and spiritual endurance and to not be afraid to expand beyond boundaries. As we grow in Christ we, too, grow in endurance.”
PTM invites you to walk in the light this Christmas Season with our annual Christmas Devotion. This collection of devotions samples writings from PTM staff and volunteers.
