Shining Star

Today marked the First Advent and the first Sunday of the Moravian Calender Year…the star is shining bright as a symbol that a child will be born who will save us from our sins through compassion and love for each and everyone of us.

New International Version
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. – John 3:16

Jesus was born in a crib in Bethlehem, 3 Wise Men followed a star guiding them to the miracle boy Jesus – on them they had gifts of gold and of incense and of myrrh.

In the same way that the Star guided the 3 wise men, God is guiding each and everyone of us to fullfil a purpose that he has planned for us, he has given us each a unique talent or gift and wants us to use this for his work so that when we meet him and he asks what we have done with our lives – we can firmly state with confidence that we let out light shine.

This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine,
This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel – NO!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Hide it under a bushel – NO!
I’m gonna let it shine,
Hide it under a bushel – NO!
I’m gonna let it shine, Let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine.
Don’t let Satan blow it!
I’m gonna let it shine.
Don’t let Satan blow it out.
I’m gonna let it shine
Don’t let Satan blow it out.
I’m gonna let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I’m gonna let it shine.
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I’m gonna let it shine,
Let it shine til Jesus comes.
I’m gonna let it shine.
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine.
This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine,
This little light of mine, I’m gonna
let it shine,
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine.
let it shine, let it shine, let it shine
