“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 15:9-11

TODAY’S WORD…

.

Jesus said,

“As the Father has loved Me,

so have I loved you.

Now remain in My love.

.

If you keep My commands,

you will remain in My love,

just as I have kept My Father’s commands

and remain in His love.

.

I have told you this

so that My joy may be in you

and that your joy may be complete.”

.

– John 15:9-11 (JB)

REFLECTION…

.

Christ’s love for us

is a reflection of the love the Three Divine Persons have for one another

and for all mankind:

"We love, because He first loved us." (1 Jn 4:19)

.

The certainty that God loves us is the source of Christian joy,

but it is also something which calls for a fruitful response on our part.

This should take the form of a fervent desire to do God’s will in everything,

that is, to keep His commandments,

in imitation of Jesus Christ, who did the will of His Father.

.

.

PRAYER…

.

Lord Jesus,

You proved Your love for me

when You died on that cross to save me.

.

Lord, I fervently desire to do Your will,

to obey Your commandments,

and to follow Your example.

.

Grant that I may remain in Your love,

so my soul can rejoice and delight in Your Truth

.

For this I pray. Amen.
