As I write this, the sun is lighting up a snow-covered world (or at least our corner of it). There is a brilliant intensity to sunlight on snow. The intense sunlight means that snow will melt, the ground will be watered, and yes, spring growth will be revealed. Light brings life.
Jesus says, "I AM the light of the world." This statement reveals more about who Jesus is, and in doing so, also tells us more about God. God is about overcoming the darkness and moving to light. This light of Christ can chase away the darkness in our world, and in our lives, transforming our world and us. This Christ light is a gift of grace, and one that Jesus invites us to share with others. How are we shining the light of Christ’s love into the world?
I look forward to worshiping with you this Sunday. Please pray for how God is calling each of us to share in the mission of Buckhall: to make disciples of Jesus Christ.
Yours in Christ,
P.S. Please remember to turn your clocks ahead for Sunday.
