Live in the Light of the Truth
“If you remain in my word, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” John 8: 31-32
In this gospel, some who call themselves “the descendants of Abraham” are trying to kill Jesus because they do not believe He is God. And Jesus, upon hearing this, said that if they don't believe in the truth, then they are living in the darkness of sin. As disciples, it's hard to believe in something we cannot see. But does it mean it's not real or doesn't exist? In times of doubt and uncertainty, believing can be really hard to do. The hardest lesson I've recently had to learn is that faith is affirmed in darkness. And sometimes we need to just let go and open our eyes in the darkness, trusting that God will lead the way that we may see the light. And through our own spiritual journeys, we will come to fully believe that He is the Truth. We are called to live in the light and spread the good news of Christ, even in the darkest of places.
Open my eyes Lord. Help me to see your face. Open my eyes Lord, help me to see. Open my ears Lord. Help me to hear your voice.
Open my ears Lord, help me to hear. Amen.
Dn 3: 14-20, 91-92, 95, Dn 3: 52-56, Jn 8: 31-42
