FAN INTO FLAME YOUR FAITH
⏰Wednesday of the Sixth Week in Ordinary Time II (19 Feb 2020)
📖Jam 1:19-27; Ps 15:2-3a, 3bc-4ab, 5 (R.v.1b); Mark 8:22-26
🎤FAN INTO FLAME YOUR FAITH
The gradual healing of the blind man in Mark 8:22-26 is a good description of our relationship with God. Just as the blind man gradually regained his sight, we gradually grow in Christian Maturity and God is always patient with us even in our many failings. But it is expected that that growth must be steady and devoid of any hypocricy. Hence, St. James asks us expel from us everything that will block us from hearing of and doing the will of God.
This call to do the will of God is not a dull but an active one. We must be able to put to action what we have heard and believed. And St. James gives us an example of what we must do: “visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and…keep [yourself] unstained from the world” (Jam 1:27).
I pray for you today that your daily strive towards perfection would yield a positive result, thereby making you a true witness to Christian principles. Amen.
Have a grace-filled day ahead. Peace be with you.
