I have often thought about why do we put up lights at Christmas time? Yes they are beautiful but what is the reason? To be honest.. I do not know. But I'm grateful that we do have the lights up and here's why.
In the scriptures (Bible and Book of Mormon) we learn that Jesus Christ is the light of the world. Through Him we can find our way out of darkness.
Look around at all the Christmas decorations. The lights, candy canes, oranges, presents, Santa Clause and the Christmas trees. They all represent Christ in some way to help remind us the true meaning of Christmas.
I know that my Savior Jesus Christ is the light of this world, it is through Him that we can have everlasting life. I love my Savior and My Father in Heaven, I'm grateful for this time of year that we have to be reminded of Him. Remember with that little bit of light, we can see many things.
I want that light in my life... Do you?
I know that this gospel is true. I know that Joseph Smith is a Prophet of God and with His help, Joseph Smith restored the church. I know that Book of Mormon is another testament of Jesus Christ.
Remember who you are and what you stand for!
