The Light that Shines: Merry Christmas

Myss Lafunky is using this medium to wish you a Merry Christmas.

Below is a Poem that I wrote about the season of Christmas. I was opportune to present my write-up as a Spoken-Word at a gathering.

There is a light that shines in darkness.
And it seemed it took a while to spark it.

We had waited long for the light to arrive.
So many prophecies were made about this coming light.
Prophet Isaiah told the House of David that a Virgin would conceive and bear a son and that his name would be Immanuel.

The world was becoming gloomy, many sacrifices were being made. 
Although He was in the world, we did not know him as he had not physically come to the earth.

The Bible says:
The Deliverer will come from Zion, he will banish ungodliness from Jacob”; “and this will be my covenant with them when I take away their sins.” (Romans 11:26-27 ESV)

There was a night when God gave the greatest gift to come to the world.
He blessed a woman with the hope of the world.
He chose a young girl to bring the light to this world.
He blessed a girl called Mary to bring hope, peace, salvation and joy to the world.
Mary gave birth to Jesus.
Jesus came to establish his kingdom on earth.
Jesus, the Messiah came to give us hope.

Even when He came, His own did not receive Him.
He came to change us and He would love to change you and I. Are you allowing Him to change you?
For our sake, God came to the world as Jesus, He made himself so low that he was born in a manger.

He came to the world to shine His light.

Not the light on our streets or on our Christmas tree.
But the light in our heart, the light to obey his Word, the Light that leads to eternal life.
The light that removes darkness away.

Jesus came to give us light so that you and I can shine and so that He can shine through us.
Jesus said in John 8:12 that, I am the light of the world, whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light that leads to life.
Are you walking in darkness or in the light?

Mary was chosen to carry this light into the world. She ensured that she delivered the light.
She didn't damage the light. She followed all the instructions to ensure that the light was born.

Do you carry this light?

Do you rely on this light on a daily basis?
Rely on His light to guide you on your earthly journey. In all that you do, in all that you say and think, rely on God's light to guide you.
Rely on His light to guide you home.

Make a commitment with God that you will share the light of God with your friends and relatives before the end of year 2014.

From all of us (Myss Lafunky's Team), We Wish You a Merry Christmas.

  1. Its a great piece.
    None likes the sound of darkness but would rather stay in the Light. John 1.1.1-5 present Jesus as light and goes further to say that he is the Light of men.
    we all need to come to Jesus to behold true light and stay in the light so that we can illuminate our world.
    this piece has given us that picture and i trust each one would come in contact with Jesus in a unique way not only in the season of Christmas but with each day of our lives.

    1. Thank you for your comment. That is so true, I do not think anyone would like to be in darkness.
      I pray people worldwide will come to the realisation of the true light.
