It’s Advent, friends!! What a joyous time of the year!! There is nothing more exciting than preparing for the coming of our Savior. Welcoming a new born babe in a manger, seemingly so small and ordinary, who will grow to become the Savior of the entire world!
During the month of December, I will be celebrating the coming and the birth of our Lord.
Today I am looking at John 1:1-5:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
There is so much evil in this world, so much darkness. You cannot turn on the TV without seeing how evil is moving in the world today. But do you see verse 5? The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. The light… our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ… shines so brightly that nothing the devil does could ever extinguish it!!
I may fail. I will fail! I do fail. Daily! But no matter what I do, no matter what failures I have in my walk, my Jesus stays the same! He never fails! The devil may defeat me but he will never defeat my Lord!!! It is a wonderful feeling to know I am on the winning team!! No matter how often I fumble or fail, the outcome will be the same: God always wins!
