“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 2:3-6

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

We know that we have come to know Jesus

if we keep His commands.

Whoever says, ‘I know Him,’ but does not do what He commands is a liar,

and the truth is not in that person.

.

But if anyone obeys His word,

love for God is truly made complete in them.

This is how we know we are in Him:

whoever claims to live in Him must live as Jesus did.

.

– 1 John 2:3-6 (NIV)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Knowing God is not a merely intellectual exercise

– the immensity of God can not be grasped by man’s limited understanding.

.

Knowing the Lord refers to something much simpler and more important:

it means being united to Him by faith and love – by grace.

.

True knowledge of the Lord consists in,

doing what He commands,

obeying His word,

and, above all, Christians must identify their life with Christ’s

and live as He did.

QUOTE…

.

"Walk as He walked:

does that not mean giving up the comforts He gave up,

not being afraid of the kind of trials He bore,

teaching what He taught […],

persevering in helping even those who show no appreciation,

praying for one’s enemies,

being kind to evildoers,

serenely tolerating the proud?"

.

– St. Prosper

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord, help me be more like You.

Increase in me while I decrease, and let me serve You with all my heart and with all my soul.
