REFLECTION…

.

Jesus wants us to understand that love of God, if it is to be authentic,

must be reflected in a life of generous and faithful self-giving

obedient to the Will of God.

.

It is they who accept God’s commandments and obey them,

who truly love Him.

obeying and believing in the Loved One"

My Lord and my God,

I want to obey Your commands;

give me new life, for You are righteous.

Enable me to speak the truth at all times,

because my hope is in Your judgments.

I will always obey Your law,

forever and ever.

I will live in perfect freedom,

because I try to obey Your teachings.

I find pleasure in obeying Your commands,

because I love them.

I respect and love Your commandments;

I will meditate on Your instructions.

Remember Your promise to me, Your servant;

Even in my suffering I was comforted

because Your promise gave me life.

I find my happiness in obeying Your commands.

You are all I want, O Lord;
