'Living Lent': Thursday of the Fifth Week of Lent - Day 37

'Living Lent': Thursday of the Fifth Week of Lent - Day 37


PRAY:
"If today you hear his voice, harden not your hearts." (Psalm 95:8)

READING: John 8:51-59

51
In all truth I tell you, whoever keeps my word will never see death.

52 The Jews said, 'Now we know that you are possessed. Abraham is dead, and the prophets are dead, and yet you say, "Whoever keeps my word will never know the taste of death."

53 Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? The prophets are dead too. Who are you claiming to be?'

54 Jesus answered: If I were to seek my own glory my glory would be worth nothing; in fact, my glory is conferred by the Father, by the one of whom you say, 'He is our God,'

55 although you do not know him. But I know him, and if I were to say, 'I do not know him,' I should be a liar, as you yourselves are. But I do know him, and I keep his word.

56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to think that he would see my Day; he saw it and was glad.

57 The Jews then said, 'You are not fifty yet, and you have seen Abraham!'

58 Jesus replied: In all truth I tell you, before Abraham ever was, I am.

59 At this they picked up stones to throw at him; but Jesus hid himself and left the Temple.

MEDITATION:

Jesus has always been, and he has always been with the Father. Likewise, he is always with us. It can be difficult for unbelievers to see this. But we see it plainly.

LET US PRAY:
Lord, let me see that you are always with me. Let me see you everywhere I go, in the hearts of the people I meet, and in the wonders of the world around me. You keep your promises. Thank you, Amen.

ACTION:
I will be attentive to the presence of God all around me as I go today.
