Dear Friend in the Lord,

Jesus’ Truth: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaimed to the Jews that those who commit sins are “slaves”, but those who believe in Him as the Saviour, would be liberated from their sins, and can gain Eternal Life.  Ponder on, “Do we reject the most precious divine Gift of Eternal Life?  Live our faith: receive the Sacraments with greater fidelity.”

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 come to know the truth, and the truth will set 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 set free?” ’

Jesus replied: ‘In all truth I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave. Now a slave has no permanent standing in the household, but a son belongs to it for ever. So if the Son sets you free, you will indeed be free.’
