DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage

Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Word – Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims, “If you make My Word your home, you will be my disciples; you will come to know the Truth. The truth will set you free.”  Ponder on, “Do I take Jesus’ Words of wisdom to heart seriously and allow them to form my attitudes, behaviour and daily living?”

Fr Philip Heng, S.J.

John 8:31-36

To the Jews who believed in him Jesus said: ‘If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples; you will learn the truth, and the truth will make you free.’

They answered, ‘We are descended from Abraham and we have never been the slaves of anyone; what do you mean, “You will be made free?” ’

Jesus replied: ‘I tell you most solemnly, everyone who commits sin is a slave. Now a slave’s place in the house is not assured, but a son’s place is assured. So if the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed.’
