20 Feb Reasons for Judgment (Isaiah 58:1) by Matthew Laugeman
“Thus says the Lord GOD: Cry out unsparingly, lift up your voice like a trumpet blast; Tell my people their wickedness and the house of Jacob their sins.” ~ Isaiah 58:1 (full readings)
Matt’s Reflections: The great prophet Isaiah of the Old Testament was at the right place at the right time to do the Father’s Will. Fast forward to 2015. We are all called to Holiness, to strive to be Saints. Can our Heavenly Father count on us to do His bidding? There will always be darkness in our world until Christ returns in all His glory! Until then, we know that “light” exposes everything in the dark. Brothers and sisters, I would like to believe that when Life Runners gather to witness for life, our lights together are like that trumpet blast referred to in Isaiah 58 from today’s first reading! Now is the time, and GOD is calling us!

Faith Quote: “True love causes pain. Jesus, in order to give us the proof of His love, died on the cross. A mother, in order to give birth to her baby, has to suffer. If you really love one another, you will not be able to avoid making sacrifices.” ~ Blessed Mother Teresa
