Our God is a God of light and his kingdom of light has broken into the kingdom of darkness through the birth of Jesus Christ. Through him we have been redeemed out of darkness and into his glorious kingdom.

"And you, my child, will be called a prophet of the Most High; for you will go on before the Lord to prepare the way for him, to give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God, by which the rising sun will come to us from heaven to shine on those living in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the path of peace.” Luke 1:76-79
