The festival of lights reminds us that there is something common between us and these beautiful diyas. Just like these ordinary clay diyas are only lit by a flame that they never had, only God’s Eternal Light can light our hearts which we can never generate by ourselves.
Many of us desire the light and do our very best to reduce the darkness from within us. But we still need God’s flame. As God is the source of Eternal Light, God can easily light this flame in our hearts, God’s light will help expel the darkness from within.
Jesus said, “I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won’t have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life.” May Jesus enlighten our hearts, dispel the darkness within, and grant us Eternal Life
Happy Yeshu Diwali!
