Devotion on Advent, Hymns, Genesis 1:1, 3-4. 4 pages.

In the beginning … God said, “Let there be light” and there was light. God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness (Genesis 1:1, 3-4).

It’s beginning to look like Christmas! Lights and decorations seem to be everywhere, inside and outside of our buildings. THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD IS COMING! Who is the Light? Why did He Come? How do we fit into this story of lights?

Note: This devotional is most effective if you provide either an Advent wreath or just 4 candles plus a white candle, which can represent the Christ candle. Also, beforehand, pass out to your group small candles with a drip sleeve. You may also mark certain sections to be read by several readers.
