“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Ephesians 4:23-24

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.

Put on your new nature, created to be like God

– truly righteous and holy.

.

– Ephesians 4:23-24 (NLT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

“Let the Spirit…”

We need to welcome the Holy Spirit into our hearts,

and let Him, allow Him, to work in us

so as to renew us.

.

He will help us look closely at ourselves

and to humbly admit and purposefully fight against

our defects, our weaknesses, and our passions – even if it hurts –

and to build on our strengths, talents and abilities

so as to serve and honour God,

and spread His love.

.

This is not simply a cosmetic change

but, rather, a deep inner renewal,

whereby we become a new creature in Jesus Christ.

.

The Spirit enables us to practice righteousness and holiness

in a manner that exceeds our natural human capacity.

.

The Spirit gives us life

…and makes us whole.

.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"The power of God is made manifest in our weakness

and it spurs us on to fight, to battle against our defects,

although we know

that we will never achieve total victory during our pilgrimage on earth.

.

The Christian life is a continuous beginning again each day.

It renews itself over and over."

.

– St. Josemaria Escriva

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Consoler Spirit, Spirit of Truth,

You who are All Good come dwell in me, cleanse and save me.
