Daily Word Of God
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Anyone who loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we shall come to him and make a home in him. Anyone who does not love me does not keep my words. And the word that you hear is not my own: it is the word of the Father who sent me.
‘I have said these things to you while still with you; but the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all I have said to you. Peace I bequeath to you, my own peace I give you, a peace which the world cannot give, this is my gift to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid.’
Today's Pointers on God's Word
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?
- If we love God, then the way we live our lives must also show that we are a true believer and His disciple. To “keep God’s Words” in our daily living is to live a wholesome life that Jesus has shown us through His life and teachings.
- We can never live a wholesome life unless we are faithful to His Teachings and Words of Wisdom of how we ought to live as His believers and disciples.
- The ways of Jesus are far from being restrictive. In fact, they will free us from all human attachments to material and other superficial living, and help us be more fully a child of God. And, this will bring true peace and joy in our lives.
