1 John 1:5-7 Now this is the message that we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and in him there is no darkness at all. If we say, “We have fellowship with him,” while we continue to walk in darkness, we lie and do not act in truth. But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of his Son Jesus cleanses us from all sin.
“My beloved ones, come into the light for you are children of the light. The Vigil you kept was a visible sign of your adoption as sons and daughters of light. You have been elevated in Christ far beyond what your nature deserves. Therefore take special care to guard this gift as your most prized possession. Do not let the glamor of evil tempt you away–do not trade a pearl of great price for a shiny trinket. The days grow darker, my children. The darkness of sin spreads over the world like a pestilence. But as you saw at Vigil, one candle dispels the darkness. As the days continue to darken, hold your light high. Only your own sin can dim your light. Now is not the time to let down your guard, but remain in a state of grace and you will be my light in the world.”
Jesus, Light of Life, Joy of the Father, you know how little we deserve to be your representatives on earth. But by your grace your light is made visible in us. Here I am Lord, I come to live in you will. Keep me far from sin. Amen. Christ is risen! Alleluia!
(Note from Pelianito: I will not be posting new messages in the next week or so as I will be away. However, I will be checking the comments regularly so feel free to be a light to others as you have done in the past. May you have a blessed Easter season in the Risen Lord my dear friends. Alleluia!)
