The Christ Candle: The Light of the World is Jesus

“God is light; in Him there is no darkness at all.” 1 John 1:5

The fifth Advent candle is Christ.  He is the light of the world because He came into the world from heaven to spread the light of God to all.  He not only spread the light, He entered into believing hearts to make his creation full of light.  It reminds me of one candle being the source of light for hundreds of smaller candles.  Each one burns as brightly as the one before, filling the room  with its glow.  I am one of those candles, lit by Him the moment I believed and He entered my heart.

In the year to come, as I have for the past 37 years, I will let this little light of mine shine so others can find their way to Him.  A beloved hymn says:  ” Let the lower lights be burning! send a gleam across the wave! Some poor struggling, fainting seaman you may rescue, you may save.”

“You are the light of the world…let your light so shine before others that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”  Matthew 5:14,16
