THE CANDLE OF LOVE
God’s chosen people often turned away from the Law and were less than faithful, yet, they were still God’s chosen people. Long before Christ was born, God made a promise to King David that his throne would be established forever through God’s faithful love.
On the night Christ came to earth, that promise was fulfilled – out of the house of David the Saviour arose, a Saviour given to redeem the whole world.
God’s love for us truly does endure forever, and in remembrance of God’s mighty acts through Jesus Christ we light the Candle of Love.
Let us pray: Lord God, help us always to remember that we are redeemed through our belief in Your Son. No matter how far we stray, You’re always right there waiting for us, loving us. We rejoice in Your steadfast love for all people of the world, fulfilled in the birth of Your Son, Jesus. Amen.
P.S. This one was not light that day.
Proverbs 22 verse 6
Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their life."
