The Light of the World
Sometimes the good Lord makes Himself clearly known. For example, a few Sundays ago three children were baptized at The Family of Faith – Miramesa. After the service was done and all the participants had left, I was locking up the building and found this scene. Sunlight was shining down from above. The single beam of light landed directly on the silver bowl of the baptismal font.
In John 8:12 we read Jesus say, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” When the sunlight descended through the windows and directly upon the baptismal font I thought of these words from Jesus.
As we begin our Lenten pilgrimage this week (Ash Wednesday was March 6), we seek to follow the light of the world. We also pray to God to keep us from walking in the darkness. We all need support in our pilgrimage. We at The Family of Faith Lutheran Church and Preschool stand ready to support you as you follow the light.
