Turn Off the Dark

Death is what Christmas is all about. Jesus came to turn off the darkness of death by turning on the Light. Hebrews 2:15 says Jesus came to release those “who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage” Christmas exists so there could be an Easter, so we could live with hope and die without fear.

Jesus is the wonderful counselor who was sent to us to give us wisdom and free us from what frightens us. We live in very uncertain times. The economy seems fragile, and natural disasters lurk around every corner. They don’t all make the news, but there is a mass murder in America every two weeks.* Like the light that causes cockroaches to scatter, the presence of Jesus’ perfect love in the human heart drives out all fear.

Death has been stripped of its power. Jesus took the bullets out of the devil’s gun. Satan can still pull the trigger, but there are only blanks in the chamber. Instead of being terrified, we can actually look at death victoriously. This is what Paul meant when he said Jesus has abolished death.
