The Gospel of John 1:9-10
“The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.”
As we hang our holiday lights, can we be sure to say we recognize Jesus’ light better than our ancestors did? What does it mean to call Jesus the light, and how can we make sure that we are not missing it, or resisting it?
