My laptop keyboard looks clean under typical lighting conditions. But whenever it becomes exposed to the morning sunshine from my office window, and whenever I’m not blocking that light, all the semi-invisible dust starts to “magically” appear, and makes my keyboard look old dirty. As I reflected upon that fact, I remembered this passage:
1 John 1:5-10
The Message (MSG)
Walk in the Light
5 This, in essence, is the message we heard from Christ and are passing on to you: God is light, pure light; there’s not a trace of darkness in him.
6-7 If we claim that we experience a shared life with him and continue to stumble around in the dark, we’re obviously lying through our teeth—we’re not living what we claim. But if we walk in the light, God himself being the light, we also experience a shared life with one another, as the sacrificed blood of Jesus, God’s Son, purges all our sin.
8-10 If we claim that we’re free of sin, we’re only fooling ourselves. A claim like that is errant nonsense. On the other hand, if we admit our sins—make a clean breast of them—he won’t let us down; he’ll be true to himself. He’ll forgive our sins and purge us of all wrongdoing. If we claim that we’ve never sinned, we out-and-out contradict God—make a liar out of him. A claim like that only shows off our ignorance of God.
When God’s light shines on us, all our blemishes are revealed. What appears clean isn’t really clean at all.
These specks of dust are not easy to clean, as they lodge themselves in the most unreachable of places, but just as nothing can hide from light, all our impurities are not impossible to clean.
Kahit yung mga makulit na dumi na katulad ng mga kalaban ni Mister Bogus, kayang-kaya ni Lord.Walang kasalanang hindi kayang patawarin, basta’t inaamin. Walang bahagi ng buhay na hindi kayang baguhin, basta’t naisin.
May mga karumihan ka ba sa buhay ngayon? Wag mo nang antaying dumami pa, linis na!
