HRIST, THE RESURRECTION AND THE LIGHT is a perfect subject for
Standing near Jesus, we know that we are enfolded in his gentle and merciful
the medium of stained glass because the pure white light of God’s glory
pours forth and through Christ translates it into the colors of every day—
the colors of the Kingdom. Light makes what is otherwise dark and formless
visible. Likewise we can only see our own lives clearly through the light that is
light. We can hear him say, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will
not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8: 12).
Through the best and worst of times, we must hold fast to the belief that God
is showing us the way, leading us to life. We may suffer at the hands of others and
make our own mistakes, but if we look, we will see that God’s beacon is constant.
It is important to God that we shine as our true selves within his glorious light. =
Light up your life
