The collect for Sunday contains the following:
Grant that your people illumined by your word and sacrament, may shine with the radiance of Christ’s glory, that he may be known, worshiped, and obeyed…
Just as a washed car, free of grime, road salt, and mud is more reflective of the sun’s rays, so we more fully reflect God’s love when we are free of the many pursuits that pull us from faithfulness. We know God primarily through holy scriptures, we worship God on Sundays among the people of God, and we obey God by living the fruits of spirit- love, joy, peace, patience, faithfulness, kindness, gentleness, generosity, and self control.
A Jesus Christ is The Light of all the World, so may we reflect his light each and every day.
