“Amen, amen, I say to you, the Son cannot do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing; for what He does, the Son will do also.

For the Father loves the Son and shows Him everything that He Himself does, and He will show Him greater works than these, so that you may be amazed.

For just as the Father raises the dead and gives life, so also does the Son give life to whomever He wishes.  Nor does the Father judge anyone, but He has given all judgment to His Son, so that all may honor the Son just as they honor the Father.

Whoever does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent Him.

Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes in the one who sent Me has eternal life and will not come to condemnation, but has passed from death to life.”

– Jesus in John 5: 17-30

Reflections:

*Aren’t we amazed of how blessed we are?

*Aren’t we amazed of how Jesus is ever ready to connect us back to His Father? Anytime, anywhere?

*Aren’t we amazed that He does not condemn us despite our continued shortcomings and weaknesses?

SIGNS AND WONDERS

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 16, 2015:

wisdom 031615e

Jesus returned to Cana in Galilee, where He had made the water wine.  Now there was a royal official whose son was ill in Capernaum.

When he heard that Jesus had arrived in Galilee from Judea, he went to Him and asked Him to come down and heal his son, who was near death.

Jesus said to him, “Unless you people see signs and wonders, you will not believe.”  

The royal official said to him, “Sir, come down before my child dies.”  Jesus said to him, “You may go; your son will live.”

The man believed what Jesus said to him and left.  While the man was on his way back, his slaves met him and told him that his boy would live.

He asked them when he began to recover.  They told him, “The fever left him yesterday, about one in the afternoon.”

The father realized that just at that time Jesus had said to him, “Your son will live,” and he and his whole household came to believe.

-From the Gospel of John 4:43-54

Reflections:

*Why do we continue to seek signs and wonders before we believe?

*Why do we seek Him only when we badly need something?

*Are we ready to believe Him even if we have not seen Him?

ARE YOU CONDEMNED?

Our One Minute Wisdom for Today, March 15, 2015:

wisdom 031515

For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him might not perish but might have eternal life.  

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.  Whoever believes in Him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

And this is the verdict, that the light came into the world, but people preferred darkness to light, because their works were evil.  For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come toward the light, so that his works might not be exposed.

But whoever lives the truth comes to the light, so that his works may be clearly seen as done in God.”

-From the Gospel of John 3: 14-21

+++

Reflections:

*Do we continue to condemn others?

*Do we want to continue living a condemned life?

*Are we ready to go to the Light and be exposed?

WHAT IS YOUR POSITION?

OUR ONE MINUTE WISDOM FOR TODAY, MARCH 14, 2015:

wisdom 031415

“Two people went up to the temple area to pray; one was a Pharisee and the other was a tax collector.

The Pharisee took up his position and spoke this prayer to himself. ‘O God, I thank you that I am not like the rest of humanity–greedy, dishonest, adulterous–or even like the tax collector.  I fast twice a week, and I pay tithes on my whole income.’

But the tax collector stood off at a distance and would not even raise his eyes to heaven but beat his breast and prayed, ‘O God, be merciful to me a sinner.’

I tell you, the latter went home justified, not the former; for everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and the one who humbles himself will be exalted.

-Jesus in Luke 18: 9-14

+++

Reflections:

*Are we humble?

*Do we pray for mercy?

*Who are we like when we pray, Pharisee or the tax collector?

Saint of the day:

St. Matilda, pray for us.

Be humble,

Brother Mo
