“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Colossians 1:12-14

TODAY’S WORD…

We thank the Father who has made it possible for us to share in the saints’ inheritance of light. He has taken us out of the power of darkness and created a place for us in the kingdom of the Son that He loves. In Him, we gain our freedom and the forgiveness of our sins.

– Colossians 1:12-14

 

REFLECTION…

God is love and His love for us was made manifest when He sent His only Son into the world so that through Him we might live. By dying on the Cross, Jesus won life for us; by redeeming us with His blood He obtained forgiveness for our sins. Through this action God reveals His wisdom and His loving care. By enabling our sins to be forgiven, Christ has restored our dignity.

 

PRAYER…

Father in Heaven,

thank You for Your great love and mercy;

thank You for freeing us from the power of evil

and for making it possible for us to share in the inheritance of the saints.

It is through Your power and kindness

that I have been brought out of darkness into Your wonderful light.

 

Thank You for the supreme sacrifice of Your Son, my Lord Jesus Christ.

Thank You for Your great mercy, O God.

Thank You for the gift of grace.

Lord, send Your Holy Spirit upon me,

to console, counsel and guide me towards Your glorious light,

where I want to be, with You, forever.  Amen.
