Listen: Read the Scriptures out loud
Reflect: When has light made you feel safer? Can you describe the the situation? Has light ever made you feel uncomfortable? What does the Bible tell us about light in these passages? Where does it come from? What do light and hope have in common? (If you are doing this as a family, give everyone time to observe the passage and add something.) Can you share a current situation where you have experienced anxiety or fear and need Jesus to be your light? How could his light change your situation?
Respond: Think about and discuss with someone that you know personally that needs hope this holiday season. As you pray for them this week, ask God to give you words of hope to speak to them. Write (or draw) them a card or give them a personal phone call to let them know that you care and are praying for them.
Listen to When Hope Came Down by Kari Jobe
Pray: Ask God to reveal Jesus' light in your most difficult situations. Pray for someone who desperately needs hope.
