'Living Lent' Series brought to you by Catholic Online
God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might have eternal life." (John 3:16)
READING: John 5:31-36
31 Were I to testify on my own behalf, my testimony would not be true;
32 but there is another witness who speaks on my behalf, and I know that his testimony is true.
33 You sent messengers to John, and he gave his testimony to the truth-
34 not that I depend on human testimony; no, it is for your salvation that I mention it.
35 John was a lamp lit and shining and for a time you were content to enjoy the light that he gave.
36 But my testimony is greater than John's: the deeds my Father has given me to perform, these same deeds of mine testify that the Father has sent me.
Jesus was sent by God to redeem us. Jesus did more than tell us how we ought to live. He showed us. How closely can we follow Christ's life? It is difficult in the modern world with its distractions and secular values. But we can live a Christlike life, if we try. We must meditate, pray, fast, and seek to emulate Christ in all we do.
LET US PRAY:
Lord, be with me as I work to live as you lived. Let me break attachments to things that are unimportant. In place of these attachments, let me renew my attachment to you.
I will call to mind someone I have written off as not living the life I feel they should live. I will look for the presence of Christ in their life.
