MONDAY, January 10                  William Laud

John 1:7-9 He came as a witness to testify to the light, so that all might believe through him. He himself was not the light, but he came to testify to the light. The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

John the Baptist’s witness to the light caused him to radiate God, the true light. This scripture reminds us that while John radiated God’s light, he was not himself the light. John served as a vessel to produce the rich truth about God.

Can you imagine a person so filled with purpose that they emanate an unquenchable light? Do you wish you were this person? In some small way, I think we are constantly emanating the light of God so that others may become witness to God’s divine truth. John gave his testimony. He wore it visibly for others to see. This is how God uses our testimony to shine a mirror onto others.

MOVING FORWARD: Who needs to see the light of God in your life today? Take the opportunity to offer your testimony, to testify to the light.

Pray for the Diocese of Jaffna (South India)
