“TEACH ME YOUR WAY, O LORD, THAT I MAY WALK IN YOUR TRUTH” (Ps 86:11)

⏰Saturday of the Fourth Week of Lent (01 April 2017) ????Jer 11:18-20; Ps 7:2-3, 9bc-10, 11-12 (R.v.2a); John 7:40-53 Do you understand why we have been focused on the troubles of the just in the hands of evil men in recent days? It suits the time that we are in presently. The passion week (Holy Week) of Jesus is just some days off. And by now, the Jewish leaders were already planning on how best to deal with him. One of such plans is seen in the Gospel, John 7:40-53. This particular plan offers us an important lesson. Notice that...

LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS I HAVE LOVED YOU

⏰Thursday of the Fourth Week of Lent (15 March 2018) ????Exod 32:7-14; Ps 106:19-20, 21-22, 23 (R.v.4a); John 5:31-47 Betrayals, envy, over-ambition, pride, selfishness…name them! They are endless! These are the ills that destroy our world today. We are so power conscious that we use others as foot mats and steps while aiming at greatness. Just imagine how beautiful this world would be when we all try to emulate the humility, selflessness and the intercessory role of Moses. God made him a promise that would have made him very successful but that is to the detriment of others. So he...

JESUS, THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER

⏰Tuesday of the Fourth Week of Lent (13 March 2018) ????Ezek 47:1-9, 12; Ps 46:2-3, 5-6, 8-9 (R.v.8); John 5:1-16 ????JESUS, THE SOURCE OF LIVING WATER How do you feel reading through Ezek 47:1-12? Do you see a strong connection between the Temple, from which flows the water that brings life, and Jesus who is the source of living water? (See John 4:14). He had made that strong connection himself when he told the Jews, “Destroy this Temple and in three days I will raise it up” (John 2:19). So we can say that Jesus becomes the new Temple that...

Amen. The people of Israel came back from the...
