Ps 43:3 Send forth your light and your truth, a let them guide me;

We celebrate God’s sending His Light and Truth to mankind.  Until Jesus came, lived, ministered, died and rose we could not reach God.  Our sin stood in the way.  Jesus took our sin on Himself and showed us the love of God.  Many of us put candles in our windows during the Advent season.  The candles are a symbol of God’s light.  Light can illuminate truth.  During this season we prepare ourselves to see more of God’s light and know more of His truth.  We do this though prayer, meditation, studying His written word and following it in obedience.  Though this is a big benefit to ourselves and strengthens our faith, it is not for us alone that we do this.  Light is no good if it is not shared.  Let us be sure we share the light we have with those around us.  Let us be sure we look where the light shines for open doors to share the truth of God with others.
