“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
and yet don’t do what I tell you?”
– Luke 6:46 (NET)
Jesus asks us to act in a way consistent with being Christians
and not to make any separation
between the faith we profess and the way we live.
Do I call Him, ‘Lord, Lord,’
and yet do not do what He tells me?
Am I like that?
Jesus asks us to be Christians in name, as well as in practice.
What matters is what lies deep inside our hearts.
What matters is whether we try, unceasingly,
to be more like Jesus;
to obey His commands;
to practise Christian faith, hope and love.
As St Teresa of Avila says,
"What matters […]
is whether we try to practise the virtues
and surrender our will to God
and order our lives as His Majesty ordains,
and not want to do our will
REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…
Come Holy Spirit,
lead me away from myself and bring me closer to Jesus.
Make me more like Him.
Come Holy Spirit.
