If you think of the dark night sky, the stars can still be seen among the darkness. If you think of yourself standing in a dark room with a candle light, it makes only a small difference to what you can see. But, if 32 others came into the room with their candles, then you can all see the light it makes. And that is what I see during the day - people holding out their personal light and giving it to others who then pass it on and so it goes on. We are like the wise men and follow our star, the Lord and we will witness the Saviour of the world when He appears in the skies to gather His stars and we will live in the light of the Lamb. Forever. Then, no more darkness.
Jesus Christ, You are our light and we follow You wherever it leads us to. No matter how we feel, Your light is still there and we will one day soon meet the source of our light. We will see the light shining all around You and bask in Your glory. Our star was born to lead us and we thank You for the eternal light that is represents. Amen.
