" This is what God the Lord says-
He who created the heavens and
stretched them out,
who spread out the earth and all
that comes out of it,
who gives breath to its people,
and life to those who walk on it:
'I, the Lord, have called you in righteousness;
I will take hold of your hand.
I will keep you and will make you
to be a covenant for the people
and a light for the gentiles,
to open eyes that are blind
to free captives from prison
and to release from the dungeon
those who sit in darkness.
'I am the Lord; that is my name!
I will not give glory to another
or my praise to idols.
See, the former things have taken place,
and new things I declare;
before they spring into being
I announce them to you."
Isaiah 42: 5-9
We are all called to righteousness by the Lord in the furtherance of His kingdom here on earth. We must be very careful in everything that we say and do for the world watches us to see how we glorify or put to shame the name of the Lord. We become bearers of His name, saved and transformed to bear fruit that will glorify the name of the Lord. We must serve as the light of the world and salt of the earth, attracting people to our way of life so that we can become credible and effective testimonies for the Lord. Let us walk in faith and trust the Spirit of God to transform us from glory to glory until we reach the whole measure of the fullness of Jesus Christ. Until then, we are sealed by the Holy Spirit until the day of our final reunion with Christ.

"The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life- of whom shall I be
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble
Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear;
though war breaks out against me, even then will I be confident.
One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek Him in His
The Lord is our light and our salvation. Although we are besieged by the enemy, the Lord will not leave us alone to fight our own battles. He is our shield and armor, a very strong help in times of needs. He is the light at the very end of the tunnel. He is the spring after the wintry weather of our soul. He gives us hope when everything else in us is drained. And He gives us His Spirit so that we can continue the fight until the final battle is won and we will meet Him face to face in His kingdom.There we will dwell with Him in eternal bliss.
