The people who walk in darkness will see a bright light. The light will shine on those who live in the land of deaths shadow.– Isaiah 9:2
The holiday movie classic Its a Wonderful Life, is the story of man who is given the amazing chance to see what the world would be like if he had never been born. We see how drastically, for the worse, one mans life changed not only his hometown of Bedford Falls, his family and friends, but exponentially, hundreds and thousands of unknowingly connected lives as well.
What if, instead of a small town George Bailey, that man had been Jesus Christ? Think. What if God had not been born into our world as an infant child, showed us how to live, and became the redeeming sacrifice for us where would we be now? Where would you be now? What would our world look like considering such a vastly changed 2000 year history?
