What has come into being 4 in him was life, and the life was the light of all people. 5 The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.
A star breaks forth in the darkness giving light to those trying to find their way. God has a special way of lighting the way for us as we navigate our lives. The wise men left their land, safety, and security to follow this new light to an unknown place. This is the light that shines on the oppressed and the oppressor, systems of righteousness and systems of wickedness, the poor and the rich, because it does not discriminate. This light finds it foundation in the radical love of Jesus. How do we bear the light of Jesus out in the world?
