BEAR FRUITS OF FAITH AND WISDOM!
⏰Monday of the Seventh Week of the Ordinary Time Year 2 (24 February 2020)
📖Jam 3:13-18; Ps 19:8, 9, 10, 15 (R.v.9ab); Mark 9:14-29
🎤BEAR FRUITS OF FAITH AND WISDOM!
My dear friend in Christ, St. James tells us that those of us who received the gifts of wisdom must bear fruits of peace, gentleness, openness to reason, mercy, goodness without uncertainty or insincerity (Jam 3:17). In this way, we shall be authentic members of Christ.
Authentic members of Christ do not live in the ways of the world but in the ways of God. Failure to connect to the ways of God leads to backwardness and disappointments. You can see that the disciples of Jesus were unable to heal the boy with mute spirit because they were unable to connect themselves properly to God. Hence, Jesus tells them of the importance of fasting and prayer as tools for effective connection with God.
Remember that if we belong to him, we shall ask of anything in his name and get it (cf. John 14:13). We primarily get to belong to him through. If your faith is as little as the mustard seed, you can move away any mountain that poses as obstruction to your progress.
In this new working week, as you go on bearing good fruits for the glory of God, you shall be unstoppable. May yours be songs of victory and glory in all things you shall embark on in this week and beyond. Amen.
Have a blessed and fruitful week ahead. Peace be with you.
