"As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world."
2nd Day After Christmas
December 27, 2020
Do You See the Light?
As I grew up, one of the things I looked forward to was going to neighborhoods once night had fallen where the homes were decorated with lights and various themes of Christmas. I would particularly look forward to this one home in south Macon where the house would have a Nativity scene, snowmen, and on the roof, Santa, his sleigh and the reindeer. It would be a wow moment for me.
In the referenced scripture, Jesus was answering a question that his disciples had asked regarding a blind man and what sin had caused his blindness. Jesus explained that they must work during the day before night would fall. Jesus explained that although night may fall, there would be light as long as He was in the world.
We, the body of Christ, are called to be the “light” to the world and attract the unknowing to see the “light of Jesus” in us. Pray that you can be that light and lead someone to the salvation you enjoy as a Christian.
Almighty God help us to be the light in this world that seems to love darkness. Let Your light shine through us.

Join us in a time of reflection, anticipation, and contemplation during the season of Advent 2020.
Each day a new reflection with a scripture and prayer will be posted on the Metropolitan AME Church website and social media to encourage you to hear the words of those reflecting, anticipating, and contemplating with you in community as we thank God for what God has done, notice what God is actively doing and anticipate what God will do next.
Read along with us each day or download the book to read and write along with us offline. Chart and journal for yourself what God has done, what God is doing, and what God is illuminating for you in this season.
