A Reflection- The Lord is My Light


A Psalm of David.

27 The Lord is my <sup class="crossreference" style="vertical-align: top;" value="(A)”>light and my <sup class="crossreference" style="vertical-align: top;" value="(B)”>salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the <sup class="footnote" style="vertical-align: top;" value="[a]”>[a]<sup class="crossreference" style="vertical-align: top;" value="(C)”>defense of my life;
<sup class="crossreference" style="vertical-align: top;" value="(D)”>Whom shall I dread?


Reflection.  Consider this.  You are sitting in a dark room, and all that is within the room is a night light, to lead your way.  The point of light starts at the bulb, but the rays illuminate the entire room, even the darkest places.  Our Lord, and our faith is like this.  All things, no matter how small, were created by him.  Non-believers say that the world is energy, that all things come from energy, but I say that all though scientifically this may be true, the Lord made this.  Even in the beginning there was first light.  This light was the Lord.  As time passed, the world grew dark, and full of sin.  The Lord caused the flood, to cleanse our sin. Much later, the world again became dark, and full of sin.  The Lord, came to us, in the flesh, and through baptism, as John the Baptist preached, we were again beginning to be cleansed.  But this was not enough.  The words and sermons of John were just simply not enough.  Christ came so that we may be redeemed and cleansed of sin, and how he did this was through His Passion, and His death, so that we may be cleansed, once and for all.  Jesus was the light, incarnate, so that all that believe in him may have salvation.  We must  continuously pray and ask for His forgiveness not so that we may receive salvation, but so that we may be closer to him on our Earthly lives.  You see, if you believe in Him, you are already saved from sin through his death, any more sin just keeps us from his beloved sacred Heart.  We must utilize the Sacrament of Confession to keep Him near, to drive us away from more sin, from more darkness.  We must always keep our eyes on the light, that is the Light of His love, the Light that illuminates our path towards the ultimate gain of Heaven, of Love eternal.  The light of His most precious and eternal love, His Heart. There is nothing to fear, even in these dark times, for before us, and after us, darkness will be there, except that now, through Christ, the night light is eternal, never fading, guiding us to salvation, defending us from evil, all the days of our earthly life.  Through prayer, reflection, and sacrifice (pain and sorrow here on Earth), we become closer to Him, knowing that when our time here on Earth is complete, His everlasting love awaits us in His kingdom.  Have a great weekend, and God Bless! ~CJA
