Your word is a lamp for my feet and a light for my path. (Psalm 119)
A Blessed and Joyous Christmas Season and a Happy, Healthy and Holy New Year to you and your family!
1 John 3:7-10
Who is the underwriter of my life agenda? Is it the enemy of life sucking me into a culture of death, or is it the Holy Trinity: Father-Creator; Son – Healer and Redeemer; and Holy Spirit – Comforter, Protector and Teacher. If I subscribe to the program of the enemy and the master of death, then unforgiveness, gossip, and deceits play out in my life with little effort on my part. But if I subscribe to the agenda of the Creator of life, then the plan of righteousness and wisdom described in the Word of scripture and the Living Word of Jesus, become my operating system, and my thoughts, words and actions can become deliberate and life-giving entities in my own life, and the lives of others. Holy Spirit, help me subscribe to righteousness, not to sin.
All who have this hope in Christ, purify themselves, just as he is pure. (I John 3:4)
In the twilight of life, God will not judge us on our earthly possessions and human successes, but on how well we have loved.”
― Saint John of the Cross
