What do you like most about Christmas?
"I have to admit that I love the presents, but my favorite part about Christmas is spending time with family," says Lexie, 11. "During Christmas my family and I like to share Christ's love with different people."
This is how the light shines in the darkness. Those who know Jesus as the light of their lives reach out to their friends with words and deeds. Even the most skeptical skeptic has no defense for acts of love, kindness and compassion in the name of Christ.
The Apostle John describes Jesus as being "full of grace and truth" (John 1:14). This world is full of harsh people driven by ego, greed and pride. Christians who treat people with the same grace they have received from God discover that they have many opportunities to speak about the love of Christ.
Think about this: Christmas lights shouldn't be the only lights shining in your neighborhood this year. Let the glorious light of the gospel shine. Tell someone about the greatest gift — God's only son and his free offer of eternal life.
Memorize this truth: "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).
Ask this question: Have you shined the light of the gospel into anyone's life this year through your deeds and words?
