“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – Philippians 2:5-8

.

TODAY’S WORD…

.

You must have the same attitude that Christ Jesus had:

.

Though He was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to.
Instead, He gave up His divine privileges;
He took the humble position of a slave

and was born as a human being.
.

When He appeared in human form, He humbled Himself in obedience to God
and died a criminal’s death on a cross.

.

– Philippians 2:5-8 (NLT)

.

.

.

REFLECTION…

.

Christ sets us an example:

we cannot attain the glory of Heaven

unless we understand the supernatural value of humility, difficulties, ill-health and suffering

– these are manifestations of Christ’s cross present in our ordinary life.

.

.

QUOTE…

.

"We have to die to ourselves and be born again to a new life.

Jesus Christ obeyed in this way, even unto death on a cross;

that is why God exalted Him.

…..

If we obey God’s will,

the cross will mean our own resurrection and exaltation.

Christ’s life will be fulfilled step by step in our own lives.

It will be said of us that we have tried to be good children of God,

who went about doing good

in spite of our weakness and personal shortcomings, no matter how many."

.

– St Josemaria Escriva

REPETITIVE PRAYER FOR TODAY…

.

Lord Jesus, help me be obedient to You

and make me humble, accepting and loving – like You!
