“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Galatians 2:20

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

It is no longer I who live,

but it is Christ who lives in me.

And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God,

who loved me and gave Himself for me.

.

– Galatians 2:20 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

Faith is something we have to practise.

It should shape all our decision, big or small

and we need to live our faith to put it into practice.

.

A life of faith should be both the fruit and the manifestation of what we believe.

.

God asks us to serve Him

with the whole of our life,

with deeds,

with body and soul,

and faith is something that is related to life, to normal everyday life.

.

It is through faith that we trust in our Lord,

knowing fully that all things are possible to Jesus.

.

Faith enables to reach targets we had always thought beyond us;

to solve stubborn and apparently insoluble problems;

it enables us get rid of firmly-rooted defects in our own character.

.

With faith,

human existence itself appears as an unfolding of the Faith,

as we live in accordance with our beliefs,

and with what we know is God’s will for each one of us.

.

Do I live a life of faith?

Do I trust in the Lord, and accept that His will?

Do I?

.

Does my faith have a truly significant bearing on my behaviour,

on the decisions I make…?

Does it?

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

The practice of the virtue of faith in our daily lives leads us to accustom ourselves

to “undertake our daily activities

as though we were constantly glancing at God to see whether what we are doing is really His Will,

whether ours is the way He wants us to do things.

It leads us to get used to discovering God in people,

to recognize Him behind what the world calls chance or coincidence,

in fact, to see His mark everywhere.”

.

– Francisco Suárez
