Advent in a single image


I found this image while doing a Google search for Advent art and images. It’s from a blog about Advent customs in Sweden.

I was stunned by the powerful message of this picture. It is a perfect representation of Advent and what Christ’s coming means — the light and transformation He brings to our hearts and lives.

For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,”

made his light shine in our hearts

to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God

in the face of Christ.

2 Cor 4:6 (NIV)

Yes Lord, may it be so. May Your light pierce the darkness and dreariness of our hearts and lives, and may Christ’s glory and beauty shine out from our faces.
