“Arise, shine, for your light has come” (Isaiah 60:1) In this year’s Advent and Christmas series, we welcome the Christ Child, who is the light of the world, arising in our lives this season. In celebration, we, in turn, shine with the light of Christ in various ways for all the world to see the brightness of His love. Each week will focus on a different aspect of the light of Christ and how we are enlightened by Him throughout our lives.
Advent Week 1 – Sunday, Dec. 1 and Wednesday, Dec. 4: Rising Light (Isaiah 60:1): Living in the light of Jesus, we prepare to celebrate His birth. Repenting of our sins, we put away the works of darkness and dress in the armor of light.
Advent Week 2 – Sunday, Dec. 8 and Wednesday, Dec. 11: Reflected Light (Zechariah 9:16) – We celebrate Jesus as the Light of the world as we reflect His light in our daily lives.
Advent Week 3 – Sunday, Dec. 15: Healing Light (Malachi 4:2) – With repentant joy we anticipate the birth of our Savior. We listen to His Word and live according to it until He comes again.
Advent Week 4 – Wednesday, Dec. 18 and Sunday, Dec. 22: Eternal Light (Daniel 12:3) – We look forward to Jesus’ Second Advent, when we will be raised in glory to live in His presence and shine like stars forever. Come, Lord Jesus!
Christmas Eve – Wednesday, Dec. 24: Shining Light (Genesis 1:3) – On this night we celebrate that Jesus, the Light of the world, lies in a manger in Bethlehem. He is our Shining Light; the Light no darkness can overcome.
