There’s a worship song I love that starts with these words: “Light of the world, you stepped down into darkness…”
I love it because it reminds me of the lengths God would go to – for us. As out-of-step and broken as we are, God loves us. More than we can ask or imagine.
Enough to step down into our darkness. Enough to step into our mess. To take on our mess. To suffer for us. To take on our sin, and cleanse us from it.
This Season reminds us that there is no length too far for God to go – for you, for me, for all.
This Advent may you know that the Light of the World stepped down into darkness for you. May you follow Him, and find the Light of Life.
