“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 20:29

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said [to Thomas],

“You believe because you have seen me.

Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”

.

– John 20:29 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

“Blessed are those who believe without seeing me.”

Undoubtedly, Jesus means us

– we who confess with our soul Him whom we have not seen in the flesh.

.

Yes, Jesus means us,

provided we live in accordance with the faith

– because it is only if we practice what we claim to believe,

that we truly believe.

.

And when we truly believe, we shall know it

– from the inexpressible hope and joy in our heart.

.

As St. Peter tells us,

“You love Him even though you have never seen Him.

Though you do not see Him now, you trust Him;

and you rejoice with a glorious, inexpressible joy.” (1 Pt 1:8)

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Lord and my God!

You know that I do believe,

but please, Lord, increase my faith

and make me steadfast in my love for You.
