Advent Devotional: Sunday, December 16

I have come as a light into the world, that whosoever believes on me should not abide in darkness. (John 12:46)

Over the last two generations, society has renounced its belief in the uniqueness of the Christian faith and Christ's salvation. A common vocabulary for discussing religious issues has all but disappeared. Therefore we will need special grace in ministering to "New Age" and other seekers who claim to have found avenues to God other than Jesus.

Lord, give us the grace and wisdom to present You as the True Light. Teach us how to give to every man a reason for the hope that is within us.
