Dear Friend in the Lord,

Gift of Eternal Life: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that God His Father will give the gift of Eternal Life to those who believe in and live the Truth of the Good News. Ponder on, “Millions of people still do not believe in the Good News of Jesus.  What are we doing to witness and draw people closer to God?

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 8:51-55

Jesus said to the Jews: ‘I tell you most solemnly, whoever keeps my word will never see death.’ 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.” Are you greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? The prophets are dead too. Who are you claiming to be?’

Jesus answered: ‘If I were to seek my own glory my glory would be no glory at all; my glory is conferred by the Father, by the one of whom you say, “He is our God,” 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 are liars yourselves. But I do know him, and I faithfully keep his word.’
