The fifth candle of Advent is white and stands for the purity of Christ. The Christ Candle is lit on Christmas as the fulfillment of God’s promise to send us a Savior and serves to remind us He is the Light of the world. It is His arrival that ushers in the Christmas season. It is His arrival that brings us the salvation we as sinners have needed since the beginning of time.
And she will have a son, and you are to name him Jesus, for he will save his people from their sins.”
Matthew 1:21 NLT
Let us celebrate the coming of Christ in the new year daily. Let us walk with Him and learn to walk in His love and His light.
Prayer: Father thank you for sending us your son Jesus to be our light in the darkness. May we begin this new year walking in the light each day. In Jesus name Amen
