Blinded by Darkness or Living in the Light

Blinded by Darkness or Living in the Light

Love for brothers and sisters in Christ reveals the authenticity of our life in Christ. How can we not become more loving as we experience the transforming power of His love? Clinging to hate, refusing to forgive, and harboring resentment are not the marks of disciples. As God’s deep love washes over and through us, we learn to forgive, to work for reconciliation, to pray for and serve one another. Live in the light today. Love one another.

Anyone who claims to be in the light but hates a brother or sister is still in the darkness. Anyone who loves their brother and sister lives in the light, and there is nothing in them to make them stumble. But anyone who hates a brother or sister is in the darkness and walks around in the darkness. They do not know where they are going, because the darkness has blinded them. –1 John 2:9-11

Prayer: Jesus, love through us today. Lead us out of the darkness and into the light. Amen.
