TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“All who love me will do what I say.

My Father will love them,

and we will come and make our home with each of them.

.

Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me.”

.

– John 14:23-24 (NLT)

REFLECTION…

.

When we hear Christ telling us,

”All who love me will do what I say”

do we, who claim to love Him, reflect deeply enough on those words?

Can we truly claim that we do what He tells us to?

.

Christ tells us to love our neighbour as we love ourselves. (cf. Mk 12:21)

Do we?

.

Christ also warns us about the vile things that defile us:

“evil thoughts,

sexual immorality,

theft,

murder,

adultery,

greed,

wickedness,

deceit,

lustful desires,

envy,

slander,

pride,

foolishness” (Mk 7:20-23).

.

Do we take heed of His warning?

.

Do we admit our weaknesses?

.

Do we sincerely ask Jesus to help us overcome them?

.

Or do we just tend to seek to justify them?

.

Jesus says,“Anyone who doesn’t love me will not obey me.”

Do I love Him?

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

My Jesus, I so want to love You. Have mercy on me, Lord!
