“In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it…The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
Jesus, Eternal Light, enlighten our sin darken, world, homes, churches, and hearts with your forgiveness, grace and peace. Make us lanterns of your love and life.
