"I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life." John 8:12
If there is one truth that leaps out at us from the pages of Scripture at Christmas, it is this: Jesus came to be the Light of the world Light came into this dark world when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.
Christmas is about light We love to sing the Christmas carol, "Silent Night." But this great hymn is not about night or darkness. It's about the Light. The third stanza of "Silent Night" says, "Son of God, love's pure light. Radiant beams from Thy holy face, with the dawn of redeeming grace."
We sing another Christmas carol, "Hark The Herald Angels Sing." The last stanza invites us to "Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace Hail the Son of righteousness Light and life to all He brings, risen with healing in His wings."
We sing at Christmas because we have something to sing about Light has come into the world, and we don't ever need to walk in darkness again
Are you walking in spiritual darkness today? Recognize that you are a sinner, that you can do nothing to save yourself, and ask Jesus, the Light of the World, to come and be Lord and Savior of your life. The good news is that if you look to Him, He will shine His light into your heart The Babe of Bethlehem is the Light of the world. He will remove your spiritual darkness with the glory of His wonderful presence if you will only ask Him.
Pray something like this:
Dear God, I know I am a sinner and desperately in need of Your forgiveness of my sins. I need the light of Your love to shine through my spiritual darkness. I understand that I can only receive this forgiveness through the Babe of Bethlehem, your Son, Jesus Christ, who died for my sins and rose from the dead that I might spend all of eternity with You in heaven. Right now I ask Jesus into my life to be my Savior and Lord. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.
About the Painting
Thomas Kinkade, the "Painter of Light," is a committed Christian and uses his art to point to the Author of Light--Jesus Christ.
In his painting Stonehearth Hutch Kinkade uses the familiar symbols of wreath and tree to herald the coming of Christmas Day.
He also uses other symbols to express the spirit of the season. The lone, rough-hewn stone cottage represents the rock of faith. Outside there is only the solitude of the woods--with no carriage track or footprint to hint at human comfort. But inside is a golden light, suggesting the hope of Christmas. The odd little path, winding and slippery, leads to the cottage door.
Kinkade's prayer is that "Stonehearth Hutch will communicate to many, in a language as universal as Christmas wreaths, yet as deeply as faith."

Many of these cards are going to people that I don't know if they have accepted the Lord or not. Hopefully they will at least look at this tract and think about the message it brings. If nothing else will plant the seed. That is what I want to do and then leave the rest to God.
