John the Baptist, the forerunner of Christ, knew well that this wasn’t all about him. John pointed clearly to Jesus as the Light of the World, God’s Chosen One. As great a prophet that John was, he spoke of Jesus’ surpassing greatness: “He is the one who comes after me, the straps of whose sandals I am unworthy to untie.” Advent is the perfect time to point to Jesus as God’s Chosen One, the Light of the World. All people need the light that He brings. All people need the life that He gives. All people need the forgiving and sacrificial love that Jesus will pour out so willingly for the world. How is God moving you to point to Jesus as the Light of the world? What is your testimony of how Jesus’ light has given you hope and peace in this dark world?
