“For if that which fades away was with glory, much more that which remains is in glory. Therefore having such a hope, we use great boldness in our speech, and are not like Moses, who used to put a veil over his face so that the sons of Israel would not look intently at the end of what was fading away” (2 Corinthians 3:11-13).
The world says, “Hush.” Too often we listen to the world. Do not listen to the world, but to the Word made flesh who has spoken the final answer. Come then into the glory of the Lord and shout it from the mountaintops. Be led not by the world, but by the One who has overcome the world. Be guided in His grace, mercy and love to live into the life to which You have been called.
Lord, through my baptism You have called me to the greater fullness of life lived in You. In the law of love, which is the greatest law of all, guide my heart and from there my actions to be in accord with Your Word. Lead me according to the promises You have given and fulfilled. May my voice ring with the truth of Your saving grace and glorious mercy which You have given to us.
Lord Jesus, You have literally gone to hell and back for the sake of those who will come into this loving relationship which You offer. Guide me today and everyday to live into and by this love which You give. May I become the person You are creating me to be, doing what is pleasing in the Father’s sight and always, always, following You wherever You lead me. Amen.
