“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
Today we celebrate the mighty God becoming a humble child in a manger. Though it may not have happened exactly on 25 Dec 0 AD, and though the early Christians may have had other reasons for setting that date, it’s nonetheless a fitting symbol that a season of cold and darkness should be marked by that glowing point of festive light. Merry Christmas to all of you, and may you enjoy it with family, with friends, and most importantly, with a heart warmed by the true Light who humbled Himself that he could dwell among us.
