DGeMs- Daily Gospel eMessage
Dear Friend in the Lord,
Depth of Faith: In today’s Gospel, Jesus proclaims that when we feel the Holy Spirit’s promptings, we are to ponder and act on them, with fidelity to God. This will be like building a house on rock and not on sand. Ponder on, “Is my faith deeply rooted in Jesus? Am I deepening my relationship with Him daily?” If so, how am I doing this?”
Fr Philip Heng, S.J.
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Why do you call me, “Lord, Lord” and not do what I say?
‘Everyone who comes to me and listens to my words and acts on them – I will show you what he is like. He is like the man who, when he built a house, dug, and dug deep, and laid the foundations on rock; when the river was in flood it bore down on that house but could not shake it, it was so well built. But the one who listens and does nothing is like the man who built a house on soil, with no foundations; as soon as the river bore down on it, it collapsed; and what a ruin that house became!’
