“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 12:48

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“The one who rejects me and does not receive my word has a judge;

on the last day the word that I have spoken will serve as judge.”

.

– John 12:48 (NRSV)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

We will be judged

in accordance with whether we accept or reject the Son of God;

with whether we accept or reject what Jesus tells us,

and what He teaches us.

.

Jesus wants us to act in a way consistent with being Christians

and not make any separation

between the faith we profess and the way we live.

.

If Ibelieve in God,

then I must accept His Word, which is written in the Scriptures,

and I must wholeheartedly seek to live my life accordingly.

.

If I reject Jesus’ teachings, His warnings and His counsel,

then I am rejecting Him – I am rejecting God.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"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

but His.”

.

– St. Teresa of Avila

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, Your Word is a lamp to my feet, a light for my path.

You are my Light and my Salvation!
