Lighting the World

Yesterday evening at our Christmas Eve Service before the traditional candle lighting and last carol sung, the pastor said a few words about the metaphor of our own candles being lit in a dark room. This symbolizes the dark world we live in and the light that is Jesus Christ. What struck me is what he said next, some of us can see the light.. some from a far and some very close up.
How clearly I can see Christ personally is surely a direct correlation between my own relationship with him and how well I have gotten to know him. My prayer this morning, Christmas morning, is that this question would continue to nag at me, in a good way.

Christ is the light of the world! Merry Christmas!
