O Come, Let Us Adore Him – Advent Day 10 – Saturday Noel, The Birth of Light
Through this Advent study, we will pause on Saturdays to consider this season of “Noel,” meaning “birth.” We rejoice in the birth of our Savior! We also rejoice in what the Lord births in our hearts as we embrace His truth and rest in His promises.
Today’s Noel: The Birth of Light
God said, “Let there be light” (Genesis 1:3). Jesus said, “I am the Light of the world. Anyone who follows me will not stumble in darkness but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). The city has no need for the sun or moon, for the glory of God . . . and the Lamb is its light (Revelation 21:23).
Light was spoken into existence, piercing through the dark void. Light—opening eyes, lifting spirits, thrilling hearts, drawing our attention to the beauty of all God has created. His light continues to cast our vision on the indisputable mark of His hand in the world He designed and orchestrates for us.
Light also exposes what needs to be seen. It is the love and mercy of our Savior that goes to any length to purge and purify lost souls, to open our eyes to our need of His redeeming grace!
As we hunger to see Him and know Him, the Light of His Spirit will also reveal and magnify His heart, His character, and His exact and eternal purposes. His Light will set our sights on glory that will never dim.
What word of newly created LIGHT does your heart ache for our Savior to speak over your world today? He longs for you to ask Him. He delights to spark fresh vision when all you see is darkness.
“The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?” “For You, O LORD, give light to my lamp; my God lights up my darkness” (Psalm 27:1; 18:28).
