Our focus throughout Advent is Jesus as the LIGHT. Believers have sometimes wondered if the light of the gospel could somehow be extinguished; especially as they saw their numbers marched off to martyrdom; or worshiping in secret in the underground Roman burial spaces (catacombs); at best, regarded as “the scum of the earth, the refuse of the world” (1 Cor 4:13). That’s how many in our culture now view us. But despite the unfashionable state of our message, the light will triumph. Jesus will triumph, along with all those who believe in him.
