LOVE’S PURE LIGHT

DAY 28

 LOVE’S PURE LIGHT

“Silent Night” is probably one of the most known and recognized Christmas carols.  I think many like this song because of the peaceful atmosphere that it creates.  With quiet music, dim lights, and candle your busy life cannot help but slow down.

The second stanza states, “Son of God, love’s pure light.” Love is one of the most abused words today.  Everyone has a definition of what love means.  If you truly want to know what love is, you must go to its source.  Our human efforts at love are always tainted by the fallen state that we live in but Jesus is the source of pure love because he is God.

1 John 4:7-12 states,

Beloved, let us love one another, for love is from God, and whoever loves has been born of God and knows God.  Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love. In this the love of God was made manifest among us, that God sent his only Son into the world, so that we might live through him. In this is love, not that we have loved God but that he loved us and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.  Beloved, if God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God abides in us and his love is perfected in us.

This Advent season, let us go back to school and learn once again what love is from its source.

 

SILENT NIGHT

Silent night, Holy night
All is calm, all is bright
Round yon virgin, mother and child
Holy infant, tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, Holy night
Son of God, love’s pure light
Radiant beams from thy holy face
With the dawn of redeeming grace,
Jesus, Lord at thy birth
Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

Silent night, Holy night
Shepherds quake, at the sight
Glories stream from heaven above
Heavenly, hosts sing Hallelujah.
Christ the Savior is born,
Christ the Savior is born.
