Were you afraid of the dark as a kid? Did the trees make a scraping sound against the house that had you convinced there was a beast outside your window? Did you think there were monsters under your bed?
Light of Faith
Jesus said to the crowd: “No one who lights a lamp conceals it with a vessel or sets it under a bed; rather, he places it on a lampstand so that those who enter may see the light. For there is nothing hidden that will not become visible, and nothing secret that will not be known and come to light.”
The goal is to see with clarity. God’s grace is required for that, but also our own efforts are indispensable. In seeking eyes that see with the light of God, we must live by the light of Christ.
Through the gift of faith we are enabled to assent fully and freely to the entire content of God’s revelation in Jesus Christ.
