Have you ever been deep in a cave when the lights are momentarily turned off? You’re thrust into such complete darkness that you can’t even see your hand in front of your face. That’s exactly what happened to three high school lads who decided to explore a cave in Tasmania after school one day. When the batteries in their flashlights died, they became lost in complete darkness. Then fear overwhelmed them when they realized that they were unable to find their way out of the darkness. The amazing story in this video of them being rescued from the dark cave is a spiritual metaphor of Isaiah 9:2—"The people that walked in darkness have seen a great light: they that dwell in the land of the shadow of death, upon them hath the light shined." We trust that you will be encouraged as you listen to this story that will reveal what your ultimate vocation in life is to be as you follow Christ.
As we celebrate Christmas, let us reflect on the many blessings we have received. We celebrate because Light came into the world: Jesus Christ was born! Christ is the Light in our lives, and as believers we have hope in Him, and through Him we can encourage others to hope in Him. It is time to share the Light of Christ in the midst of the darkness of this world. As you celebrate Christmas this year, remember there are people walking in darkness all around you who are without hope, and unaware of the greatest Gift ever given on their behalf. We encourage you to tell others of Christ so they can have the opportunity to receive Him.
Merry Christmas from the Institute in Basic Life Principles Staff!
