One Good Thing Every Day: December 22, 2013
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.
We also have the prophetic message as something completely reliable, and you will do well to pay attention to it, as to a light shining in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts.
Love--the coveted desire of every heart--is often sought blindly while stumbling through this world's darkened room on a quest for a long-ago-lost possession. This seeking goes by feel, grasping onto anyone and anything that might be the true article. But, when eyes open wider and adjust within life's dimness, false Love reveals, bringing disappointment and betrayal.
Now sounds a newborn's cry in the distance. Then, a star--the most brilliant of the night lights--casts an unexplainable glow. The call is compelling, the sight beckoning. Following the beacon leads to a stench-ridden stable. A couple crouches in the corner near a crude, hay-filled manger. Inside rests a child, a hidden wisdom in his eyes. Instantly, Emmanuel's True Love permeates life's darkest chamber--the heart.
