Luke 2:9 And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid….13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying: 14 “ Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!”
God’s glory shined on the shepherds, when the angel stood before them and announced the coming of the Savior. Jesus came revealing the glory and majesty of His Father in Heaven. His light shines in the darkness to whoever will receive Him.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. 14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.
Remember what the Christmas candles and lights really reflect, the Glory of God, shining to us through Jesus! Let us make a point to focus on His glory and majesty and worship Him. Receive and reflect His Glory!
