Monday After Epiphany, 4th January 2016
For those who sat in the region and shadow of death light has dawned. (Matthew 4:16)
It is the fourth day in the New Year and the Gospel brings forth the message of repentance: Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand;
Repent because Christ the great light has come to abolish every darkness from your heart. Repent and accept Him in your life because that is the first step towards healing from every past hurt and sin. Repent and keep the Lord’s commandments. Repent and do that which pleases God for only then can you receive from Him whatever you ask. Repent and let open the doors of mercy in your heart. Repent and let Christ abide in you.
We the people who sat in the darkness shall sit there no more. All we need to do is repent. Let’s reconcile ourselves with God through confession. His ocean of mercy is opened up for us.
