“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – 1 John 2:5

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Whoever obeys what Christ says

is the kind of person in whom God’s love is perfected.

That’s how we know we are in Christ.

.

– 1 John 2:5 (GW)

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

"That’s how we know"

– keeping the commandments

is a sign of true knowledge of God.

.

Knowing God, or knowing Jesus,

is not a merely intellectual exercise

nor does it mean that the immensity of God

can be grasped by man’s limited understanding.

It is something much simpler and more important:

knowing God means being united to Him

by faith and love…by grace.

.

It isn’t enough for us to say that we love God

and that we know Him

– we must keep His commandments,

keep His word,

walk in the same way in which He walked…

.

As we identify our life with Christ’s,

we become in Christ.

.

.

.

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, I want to be with You, I want to be like You, I want to be one with You!
