The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned. Isaiah 9:2
Yesterday the news broke about the horrific slaughter of 141 people, mostly children, in Peshawar. In too many places people remain in darkness. The world has not changed much in two thousand years and yet …. for two thousand years the light has been coming on, sometimes one at a time, sometimes a whole burst at once.
Advent is a time I look back over the 38 years since I first came to know Jesus. At times the light has been just enough to see one step in front. At other times it’s as if the floodlights are on.
Maybe today, though, you will pray with me for the people of Pakistan, that light might dawn. Come Lord Jesus.
