“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 1:4-5

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

All that came to be had life in Him

And that life was the light of men,

A light that shines in the dark,

A light that darkness could not overpower.

.

– John 1:4-5 (TJB)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Jesus is Life!

Jesus is Light!

.

Jesus is Divine Life,

the primary source of all life,

natural and supernatural.

And that Life is the light of men,

for from God we receive the light of reason,

the light of truth

and the light of glory.

.

Jesus is the Light of men

because He brings us out of the darkness of sin and error.

.

Darkness resists and has a repugnance for the light,

but Christ and the Gospel continue to shine despite the world’s opposition,

As Jesus later says:

“Be of good cheer: I have overcome the world.” (Jn 16:33)

.

QUOTE…

.

“Just as if you place a blind person in the sunshine,

although the sun is present to him,

yet he is absent from the sun;

in the same way, every foolish man,

every unrighteous man, every ungodly man,

is blind in heart. […]

.

What course then ought such a one to take?

Let him cleanse the eyes of his heart,

that he may be able to see God.

He will see Wisdom, for God is Wisdom itself,

and it is written:

‘Blessed are the clean of heart, for they shall see God.'”

.

– St. Augustine

.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Welcome, O Light Divine!

Welcome, O Holy One, Son of God.

Welcome Prince of Peace,

Come and reign in my heart

And give me life!

.

Amen.
