Thursday of the Second Week in Advent
1 John 2:1-11
Points of light spring up all over the land as the darkness of night invades late afternoon. Are there brands of darkness that seek to move in upon the light-center of your life?
As you look at areas in your life where light needs to shine, listen to John remind you that obedience to the Lord is essential for light to fill you. Otherwise, arrogance, error, and hatred—as so much darkness, will try to overtake you.
Hatred is darkness; love is light. Are there pockets of dark resentments in your life? The verses of John’s letter will be as a string of lights to adorn the house of your heart. Write. The lines in your journal will continue the points of light that the Spirit is offering to you.
Thursdays are dedicated to the New Testament, except the Gospels. During the seasons of Advent to Epiphany this year, we read the three letters of John.
