“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 14:23




Jesus said,

“Those who love me will keep my word,

and my Father will love them,

and we will come to them and make our home with them.”


– John 14:23 (NRSV)






Keeping Jesus’ word

means being good and faithful in putting His word into practice;

it means never giving up

in seeking to live it sincerely, unstintingly,

fulfilling its every consequence

in the hidden and silent sacrifice of each day.


Our basic attitude towards the Lord must be faithfulness.

In being faithful, we gladly accept His plan for us.

even though we will never completely understand how it will unfold.


But faithfulness, for the Christian,

should mean consistency to live in accordance with what one believes;

and to adapt one’s own life accordingly,

without breaking between what one practises and what one believes.


Duration is the most exacting test of faithfulness,

and duration comes from loyalty.

Loyalty for a day or two is easy,

but we are called to be persistently loyal.


Am I consistent in my faithfulness to the Lord’s teachings?

Am I truly loyal to God?


I need to persevere;

I must not give up;

I must keep on asking the Lord to heal me, change me, and renew me.






Come Father, Son and Holy Spirit,

come live in me,

take over, change me,

strengthen my faith and renew my soul.
