The traits of experiences and inspiration are assuring gifts. They are revealed within us by light. With God’s divine power we will radiate love which comes through his power. It is ecstatic when we are called angels of light. Such love may begin as flickers and explode into engulfing flames which reach out to envelop others.
We shall say, “O eternal light, you have crowned us with your glory.” Being agents of God we are caught up in the spirit with his anointing. We can then declare like Pope Francis (b. 1936), Bishop of Rome and current Pope of the Roman Catholic Church, “I believe in God – not in a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God. There is God, and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being.” God’s presence enlightens our humble minds. We are therefore blessed with his charismatic anointing of magnificent light.
Gift of Light
A gift of light will greet us to become authoritative speakers for God. We reveal this truth which fills every aspect of our mortal being when we proclaim the authoritative Word of God. Like the Gospels we are blessed with prophetic utterances and become like stars mirroring his light. The world is alighted with our presence, and experiences our works. This is faith poured out for us to enjoy life. Abraham Lincoln (1809 -1865), 16th President of the United States, explained, “I am bound to win, but I am bound to be true. I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live by the light that I have. I must stand with anybody that stands right, and stand with him while he is right, and part with him when he goes wrong.” Lincoln didn’t really abandon his friends. When they were wrong he was sure to correct them to see the light.
The Holy Spirit
The gifts of the Holy Spirit speak to our hearts. It is the spirit’s role to bring us out of darkness into light. Lift up the Words of God which do this. These are his light. We must be bathed with his delight by experiencing the wonders of his inspiration. Light as love is meant to soothe our griefs, aches and pains. As we undertake our earthly journey, it further illuminates our paths to righteousness. This is what inspires us to do the things we do. These seeds eventually blossom into magnificent trees and bear much fruit. In serving others, walking according to his ways, we become agents of his salvation. These are some images we must emulate in living happy lives.
Our eternal light transforms us into loving and caring human beings. These are his gifts at work within and among us. Through us, others will come to know God’s grace. Like us, they will come to rejoice in his salvation and serve God with their whole heart, body, soul, and mind. This is the nature of the glorious work of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
