People who do what is wrong hate the light and don’t come to the light. They don’t want their actions to be exposed. But people who do what is true come to the light so that the things they do for God may be clearly seen.
Sometimes I say to myself, “I will forget about Him. I will not speak anymore in His name.” But when I say that, His message is like a fire burning inside me! It feels like it is burning deep in my bones! I get tired of trying to hold His message inside. And finally, I am not able to hold it in.
Come and hear, all you who fear God, and I will declare what He has done for my soul.
…Oh, they’re so glad in Your presence! Festival joy! The joy of a great celebration, sharing rich gifts and warm greetings.
