Filii lucis et filii diei (1 Thes 5:5)

Jesus Christ is the Lord of the day. He comes to enlighten you. Although you can be in darkness of sin, he brings light into your soul. You might feel depressed and lonely, then he stands by your side. You never know when he appears, so you should be ready all the time. You need to open your heart for him. As a child of God you are invited to live in his light. Since you do not belong to the night or to darkness.
Maybe your friends and relatives forget about Lord Jesus. But you are the one who can remind them how precious God is in your life. 
Wake up! Read the Scripture and find the message which you look for. You are being encouraged by the Word of God and the power of the Holy Spirit. You become joyful and peaceful when you abide with the Lord. 
Today you are to experience his divine grace and win the eternal price. You don't have to live a long life but must be united to Jesus. Thus, having met him in your inner being, you are a witness and apostle of Christ. Through his holy word you are strengthened in order to support others. 
Do not lose your faith. Keep the spirit. The Lord is your light and your strength. Be brave and ready to share the Good News. Remember that your power comes from the Lord. Visit his holy temple and savour the sweetness of the Lord. 
There is nothing else you long for but communion with God. Hope in him, hold firm and take heart. You are the child of the divine fire which burns deep in your soul. Let this truth be a reality first of all in your life and also in your sisters' and brothers'.
