“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 1:5-10

TODAY’S WORD…

.

This is the message we heard from Jesus and now declare to you:

God is light, and there is no darkness in Him at all.

.

So we are lying if we say we have fellowship with God but go on living in spiritual darkness;

we are not practicing the truth.

.

But if we are living in the light, as God is in the light,

then we have fellowship with each other,

and the blood of Jesus, His Son, cleanses us from all sin.

.

If we claim we have no sin, we are only fooling ourselves and not living in the truth.

But if we confess our sins to Him,

He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all wickedness.

If we claim we have not sinned, we are calling God a liar

and showing that His word has no place in our hearts.

.

– 1 John 1:5-10 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

“We have a Paraclete, a word, an advocate, a defender at the Father’s side,

it is Jesus Christ, the Upright One.

He makes us righteous.

It is He who pardons us.

…a sin is a bad thing!

But if you have sinned, look at who is waiting to pardon you…

Always! That’s because He, our Lord, is greater than our sins.

.

We must walk in the light because God is Light.

Don’t walk with one foot in the light and the other in darkness.

Do not be liars.

And one other thing: we have all sinned.

…only one is Upright, He who paid for us.

And if somebody sins, He is waiting for us and pardons us

because He is merciful and knows very well what we are shaped from

and remembers that we are but dust…”

.

– Pope Francis. From a homily on 29th April 2016.
