“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Acts 20:24

TODAY’S WORD…

.

I consider my life worth nothing to me;

my only aim is to finish the race

and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me

– the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.

.

– Acts 20:24 (NIV)

REFLECTION…

.

These words of St. Paul should be ours.

We have all been given the task to ensure that our life becomes a testimony to our faith;

that our words reflect the truth that Jesus teaches;

that whatever we do till the end of our life

is done with Christian, altruistic love and care.

.

We are testifying to the good news of God’s grace

when we are Christ-like in what we think, say and do.

.

If we truly live and act with Jesus in our heart and mind,

we will be serving as witnesses to His love,

and we will be drawing others to Him and to His truth.

.

One other important thought:

the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace begins at home.

Our first and very important opportunity to be witnesses to Christ

is within our family,

which is how we pass on our Christian faith and values to the generations that follow.

.

But, having said that, our witnessing should not stop there,

and it must be brought out to the open.

In other words, we must live and pass on our Faith

both at home and outside the home,

right until we finish the race.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Come Holy Spirit, melt me, mould me, fill me

…and use me to take Christ to others.
