God’s Great Light

To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, To guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:79 NKJV

The people who sat in darkness have seen a great light, And upon those who sat in the region and shadow of death Light has dawned.” Matt 4:18

Neither Bethlehem nor Nazareth had anything special about them. No one expected any great or important thing to happen in their streets. But to those small villages God sent Jesus to shine. Like us, the people of Jesus day were for the most part not even looking for light. They simply sat in darkness. But the Good news about God’s great light is that He calls unsuspecting shepherds, weary wise men and simple carpenters to come to the place of His birth. No one is too far away, no one too ordinary, no place too low for Jesus. He delights in being born in every dark corner we give Him to shine!

My wife and I serve as members of a worship team at a multicultural church. Our members are from Brazil, Nepal and the U.S.. Because of the many languages and cultures in our local body we face unique challenges, such as how many songs will we do in English today? What new songs can we use in either language that are simple enough for the people to sing. The songs, the devotions and insights here are a small portion of some of the ways God is leading us as we push towards the goal. I pray that these will be both a blessing and an encouragement for those of you who may pass by Praise 2 Worship.
