But if we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, His Son, purifies us from all sin. – 1 John 1:7
The light of love doesn’t just emanate from us, it surrounds us, leads us and covers us in its glow. We cannot generate this pure light under our own power, but the incendiary love of Jesus will spill over onto everyone around us. It is brighter when we all stand together. Our flame burns hotter, our beams reach further. We are each individually purified and equipped to absorb the Spirit, then join with others in faith and encouragement to withstand the heat of adversity, turning it into a polished shine.
Wherever we are, even in a corner that seems desperately dark, we can be a bright spot reflecting the Father by the warmth of the Son.
