May The Lord shine His countenance upon us...expose and drive out any hidden darkness in our hearts, so we may live a lighted life of transparency before God.
May His Holy Spirit burn brightly for
all to see what He has accomplished within us, all for the glory of our
Holy and Heavenly Father.
may we be true imitators of Christ, awake in our faith and walking
steadfastly in His fellowship of truth and love...the illuminated path
of our Lord and Savior.
But everything exposed by the light becomes visible—and everything that is illuminated becomes a light. This is why it is said:
“Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”
Many are saying, "Who will show us any good?' Lift up the light of Your countenance upon us, O LORD!"
The LORD make His face shine on you, and be gracious to you;
Make Your face to shine upon Your servant; save me in Your lovingkindness.
But whoever practices the truth comes into the Light, so that it may be
clearly seen that what he has done has been accomplished in God.
Once again, Jesus spoke to the people and said, "I am the light of the
world. Whoever follows Me will never walk in the darkness, but will have
the light of life."
So Jesus told them, "For a
little while longer, the Light will be among you. Walk while you have
the Light, so that darkness will not overtake you. The one who walks in
the darkness does not know where he is going."
