The people walking in darkness have seen a great light: On those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned. ~Isaiah. 9:2

The Life-Light was the real thing: Every person entering Life he brings into Light.
He was in the world, the world was there through him, and yet the world didn’t even notice.
He came to his own people, but they didn’t want him.
But whoever did want him, who believed he was who he claimed and would do what he said, He made to be their true selves, their child-of-God selves.
These are the God-begotten, not blood-begotten, not flesh-begotten, not sex-begotten.
The Word became flesh and blood, and moved into the neighbourhood. 

We saw the glory with our own eyes, the one-of-a-kind glory, like Father, like Son, Generous inside and out, true from start to finish. ~John 1:9-14 MSG

  • What words or phrases stand out to you (is the Spirit highlighting for you)? Why do you think this is?
  • What does it mean to you that “The Life-Light [Jesus] was the real thing”?
  • How have you experienced “the true Light that comes to all the people of the world and [shines] on everyone” including your neighbours? (v.9)
  • How might the Spirit be nudging you to respond?

You might want to journal your response.


In the beginning, O God, was your Word:
     a light in the darkness shining.
Your Word came to life in Jesus,
     a light in the darkness shining.
Your grace has come to us with salvation,
     a light in the darkness shining.
A child has been born among us,
     a light in the darkness shining.
Your love comes to life within us,
     a light in the darkness shining.
May your love chase away all evil,
     a light in the darkness shining.
May your mercy come fill and transform us,
     a light in the darkness shining.
May we live with your love in this world,
     a light in the darkness shining.  Amen.   


  • Where do you see signs of God’s grace and generosity?
  • On each of the 12 Days take a photo, draw a picture, or journal these ‘signs’ .
