“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Mark 2:21




Jesus said,

“No one uses a piece of new cloth to patch up an old coat,

because the new patch will shrink and tear off some of the old cloth,

making an even bigger hole.”


– Mark 2:21 (GNT)






…in other words,

if we are to gladly receive Christ’s teaching,

we must be prepared to inwardly renew ourselves – totally –

and throw off the straight-jacket of our old routines

to become like Him.


It is the Holy Spirit who renews and fills the hearts of men and women of goodwill,

with the fervour of faith, hope and charity

and transforms them into trusting and loving followers of Christ.

Following Christ is not about patching up,

it is about a complete change.

It is about becoming a new me

fashioned in the likeness of Jesus.






Take over, Lord, and make me new. Make me a reflection of You.
