BRINGING LIGHT TO THE WORLD
I am constantly amazed with the sharing I hear at the international conference of a women’s catholic community I belong to. I know a few of the shares personality and they are intelligent, sensitive, successful women in their fields of endeavor.
What come out sincerely from the heart is the honest acceptance of their past sinful lives which they share openly and without reservation. It is a measure of their love for the Lord and a genuine desire to rid themselves of deadly sins, putting it behind them after accepting God’s forgiveness and redemption. By bringing the truth about their lives to the light, then the mercy and forgiveness of the Lord shines forth and they become a shining example to men. Clearly, we can lay our sins at the foot of the cross and God will cleanse and redeem us unconditionally.
Their faces reveal an inner glow, a joy and peace that can come only from the Lord. May we all be not ashamed to reveal our darkest sins before the Lord that we too may know the freedom that comes from being redeemed by His love.
“But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.” John 3:21.”
