“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 7:28-29; John 10:30

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“You know me, and you know where I am from.

I have not come on my own.

But the one who sent me is true,

and you do not know Him.

.

I know Him, because I am from Him,

and He sent me.”

.

– John 7:28-29 (NRSV)

.

.

Jesus said,

“The Father and I are one.”

.

– John 10:30 (NRSV)

.

REFLECTION…

.

You may think you know Jesus.

But if your knowledge of Christ is not a result of spending time to truly get to know Him

– through reading Scripture and through spending quality prayer-time with Him –

then your knowledge of Jesus can only be superficial,

and so will be any claim you may make about loving, worshiping and serving Him.

.

It is when you truly get to know Jesus,

that you will realise that He is one and the same with the Father,

who sent Him to die for us and save us.

.

It is when you truly get to know Jesus,

that you will get to know, and love, and worship, and serve God.

.

St. Jerome tells us that “ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ”,

and it is only by truly knowing Christ

that we get to know that He is God.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Jesus, my Lord and my God!
