CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN A MINUTE

CHRISTMAS LIGHTS IN A MINUTE by Pastor Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson

Do you know that one house during Christmas that everything is lit up, even the doghouse! If you’re like me, you say – “I wonder what their electric bill’s gonna be like!” Where did we get this tradition? Legend has it that Martin Luther, the German Reformer, was taking a walk through the woods Christmas LightsLynch House.jpgChristmas Lights 2one late December night and he saw the moonlight sparkling on the snow-covered branches of the evergreen trees. He was so struck by their beauty that he tried to recreate the sparkle by attaching candles to his Christmas tree. It reminded him of Jesus the light of the world. With the coming of electricity, people began to decorate even their homes and yards with light. So when you drive by that house, ask yourself instead, “Is Jesus shining brightly in my life?” Merry Christmas!
