⏰Monday of the Twenty-Third Week of Ordinary Time 2 (10 September 2018)

📖1 Cor 5:1-8; Ps 5:5-6, 7, 12 (R.v.9a); Luke 6:6-11

My dear, it is the beginning of a new working week. This new week promises good tidings for you. And you know what! God is out to intervene in whatever that concerns you. No matter the effort of the enemy to the contrary, you shall continue to make progress.

Indeed the enemy labours day and night to ensure that your miracle and progress are blocked. Consider the action of the scribes and the Pharisees at seeing the man whose right hand was withered in the synagogue where Jesus was teaching on a sabbath (cf. Luke 6:6-11). For them, it would be an offence to heal this man.

Imagine! There are people who are scheming to pull you down by all means. They work to see that tears are always on your face. Worst still, they want you to lose your faith. Never mind them! Click ignore at them and stick to Jesus. That is the good thing about that man with withered hand – not minding the schemings of the scribes and the Pharisees, he stayed put in the synagogue listening to Jesus.

Do you have any problem that have pushed away from Christ and his Church in search for solution? Has the devil deceived you into believing that immorality does not really matter just because of the temporary and deceptive security it offers you?

St. Paul calls on us today to come back to Christ and allow him to lead you in the light of his justice and peace. If we allow him to lead us, no battle shall ever consume us because, in him, we are more than conquerors (cf. Rom 8:37).

May his hands of love reach out to you in this new working week to enhance your faith, improve your life and increase your joy. Amen.

Have a miraculous and life-changing week ahead. Peace be with you.
