All I want is to be in the light
Friday, January 7, 2000
If we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have
fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son,
purifies us from all sin.
-- 1 John 1:7, New International Version
As I read this passage, I am reminded of a song by dc Talk that
is so very moving. it is called "In The Light" The song
is about being lost, not knowing yourself or where it is you are going.
This passage seems to give the answer for some of the 'puzzlement" that
life can bring.
"What am I doing?"
"What's going on inside of me?"
Life can be so confusing when we ourselves
are lost. But hear the Good News, Christ calls us to His side, shows us
the way, the truth and the life. When we understand this, we find
that while we may have lived a "rough" life, while we may, at
times, found ourselves in despair despising our own existence, Christ comes
along and not only forgives us, but gives us a new life and a new direction,
ushering us into the light. So, walk in the light, as He is in the
light, shine light the stars in the heavens, Let the Lord be your light
and be your salvation, all you have to do is be in the light.
Almighty and holy God, I want to walk in Your light. Lead
me, guide me and keep me focused in Your way. Thank you for greeting me
in love, changing my life and restoring me through Christ. Please
intensify my hunger to know you
and your Son more. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
