The Light Is Truth

Light is truth“. This was a part of the reading today from the liturgy of the hours. It really struck me – as Jesus is the way, the truth, and the LIGHT. The image that came into my mind was that a little light is good, but it also causes shadows. You know at night, when there is a “little light” in the room, you start seeing things there in the dark. The shadows thrive around just a little light.

But when the FULLNESS of the light is there, you see the truth. There is no doubt that the towel hanging on the wall is just a towel when the FULLNESS of that light exposes what was there all along 😁.

Today, we need to have that fullness of the light. The fullness of the truth. Jesus is the way, the TRUTH, and the LIGHT. He isn’t just a little bit of light – He is the fullness of total light, exposing what was there in our hearts and lives all along. I was challenged to “come into the light” all the way – because if we hang around the edges, we get a little bit of the light…but we start seeing things the way our minds trick us into seeing them. When we come into that FULLNESS of the light – there is no denying the truth of what was there all along.

Merciful God, may your fullness of truth become the fullness of light that will guide us on the true way to eternal life…which is found in the person of Jesus Christ our Saviour. Amen.
