Our Way Following Christ

Is To the Light

Always Connected to God’s Truth

Isaiah 45:17

You, Israel, are saved by the Lord with everlasting salvation; you shall not be put to shame or confounded to all eternity.

Matthew 13:43

The righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let anyone with ears listen!

Words of Grace For Today

Since God has done such great things for us,

Since God has saved us with a salvation without end and promised that we shall never be put to shame or be confounded,

Since we have ears to hear, and we hear God promises that we, the righteous (made so only by Grace), will shine like the sun in God’s Kingdom.

Therefore, no matter the challenges that we face in this real and messy world, we shine with the light of Christ for all to see.

And the truth shines through all efforts to hide, pervert, and deceive in the all too common methods of ‘getting ahead’ which are really paths straight out of healthy life into the abyss of the Devil’s ways.

For once one lies and relies on it, all grounding in reality is up for grabs and it will slip away from one slowly and quickly until one has no bearings for what is real. Then the nightmares begin.

For us, who shine with the Light of Christ, our bearings to reality are sure and forever reliable, for our guide is God and God’s Grace.
