Following the Light

God said, “Let there be Light.”  The Light was good.

Prophets said, “The Light is coming.”

Mary said, “Let Your Light shine in me.”

Jesus said, “Let them be light.” Then bleed for us.

Holy Spirit said, “Time for the Light to shine.”  Little flames appeared, and the Church was born.

Church said, “Let the Light spread.”  The Gospel glowed; the world saw Believers.

Believers said, “Let me be the light, so they can see Jesus in all I do.”

Christmas Verses – The First Coming #22

Jeremiah 31:15 NIV

“A voice is heard in Ramah,
mourning and great weeping,
Rachel weeping for her children
and refusing to be comforted,
because they are no more.”

After the Wise Men tricked Herod he fulfilled this verse. The boys (children) are referred to as the Innocent and there is a feast day for them.  This verse came in the middle of an encouragement (10 – 17) that was to bring hope to Israel.
