“The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.”

John 1:9


A remarkable forecast by John the Baptist, that the “True Light” was coming into the world. Jesus was the true Light; that great Light which nothing else compares. Jesus’ Spirit and grace enlightens all that the light finds and which creates a new way of life that is both eternal and aligned with God. Through this “True light” all that is good will be brighter and all that is dark will scurry away. Through this “True Light” our internal desires to be both purposeful and connected to God will be realized. We will forget the momentary dark forces of the world and walk towards a light filled with the spirit and the grace of Jesus. Jesus was and is coming into the world and our lives. Are only task of preparation during the second week of Advent, is acceptance.

Points of Reflection

  • During this week describe the moments you see the “True Light”.
  • How involved is Jesus involved in your life and how can the involvement increase?
  • How are you preparing for Christmas this season?

Blessings, until next time,
