The angel said: ‘Go to the Temple and tell the people all about this new life.’
Those who love the Lord never cease to praise him and to tell others of his goodness. Our God is a God of light and truth, and the light needs to shine out and the truth needs to be proclaimed. Sometimes the truth hurts—ourselves or others. We need to be careful in our proclamation, but careful also not to hide the truth when it needs to come out.
Just as iron bars did not deter the apostles from declaring the truth, may we always strive to be free from the shackles of what is false, to put God first in our lives, and to be unafraid to announce God’s good news to the world.
