TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus asked His disciples,

“But who do you say that I am?”

.

Simon Peter answered,

“You are the Christ,

the Son of the Living God.”

.

And Jesus answered him,

“Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah!

For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you,

but My Father in Heaven.”

.

– Matthew 16:15-17 (NRSV)

REFLECTION…

.

When we enter into a personal relationship with Jesus,

we get to recognise Him for who He truly is.

.

We can enter into such a relationship,

by reading about and reflecting upon what the Lord did and said during His life on Earth,

as recounted by the four evangelists in the four books of the Gospel.

.

Touched by God’s great love for us,

which is reflected in Jesus’ story and by Christ’s great sacrifice to save us,

we will be filled with this desire to learn more about Our Lord.

.

As we find ourselves reading and meditating on the other books of the New Testament,

we will receive a deeper dimension of Christ

and we will begin to understand and to acknowledge

that “the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us.”

.

And God’s Holy Spirit will open our minds and hearts,

and we will exclaim, with love and conviction,

“Lord, You truly are the Christ,

the Son of the Living God.”.

.

.

.

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

With the help of Your grace, O Father, and through the prompting of Your Divine Spirit,

I joyfully exclaim, with love and certainty:

‘Lord, You truly are the Christ, the Son of the Living God.’
