Legend has it that somewhere on a South Sea island there is a monument to a faithful missionary. The inscription on that monument was intended to honor the missionary, but it also captures the heart of the Christmas story: “When he came, there was no light. When he left, there was no darkness.”
That’s a good description of the mission and plan of God. When Christ came, there was no light. When He left, there was no darkness.
He said, “I am the Light of the world,
Darkness will be no more.
I am the way and the truth and the life,
And I am the Light of the world!”
