HELLO FRIENDS: 01.02.14 – Unto You is Born… Clarity

Hello Friends,

“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.” Luke 2:11
A couple of weeks ago I began looking at the phrase “UNTO YOU IS BORN.” Here is part three…Unto You is Born…CLARITY.

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth and shed radiant light upon it as a source of energy, warmth and perception. Yet the created sun could not accomplish what only the SON of God could. Only He could bring legitimate clarity to the world.  

The Gospel of John, in the same fashion as the Book of Genesis, commences with “In the beginning” yet continues to speak of the “true light that gives light to every man.” The distinct entrance of this Light enveloped the darkness that had encased our world and it’s inhabitants in confusion and clamor. Darkness crawled into our hearts on the knees of sin and took up residence in our pride-filled spirit.

But… unto us the light of the world was born, and by invitation, will clarify, by eradication, the darkest of places.

P.S.  Over the next two weeks I will be expanding on the theme of “UNTO YOU IS BORN.”  Keep an eye open for these HELLO FRIENDS emails.  Next week: Unto You Is Born…SALVATION.
