They Saw the Light - Adam and Even Part 5

Come into my heart
Come into my heart
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus
Come into today
Come in to stay
Come into my heart, Lord Jesus.
Centuries passed by.  The hope of light was still burning.  The hope of salvation has endured years of sin and darkness at its worse.  The offspring of Adam and Eve had also been tarnished—one was dead and the other banished by God.  The earth and its inhabitants reeled in hopelessness and dread.  Sin had become an horrendous monster.  The world was headed for disaster.  It would be covered by the judgment of flooding waters.  Its second set of citizens, seeking power and unity, would be scattered by many languages.*

 "Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
         And He saved them out of their distresses.
 He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,
         And broke their chains in pieces.
 Oh, that men would give thanks to the LORD for His goodness,
         And for His wonderful works to the children of men" (Psalm 107:13-15)!

When things look worse, God brings forth light, salvation, hope.  This will be the last day to light your first candle on your advent wreath.  Tomorrow we move on with the lighting of two candles.  God is bringing forth His light as well.
