Daily Word Of God
Jesus said to his disciples: ‘If the world hates you, remember that it hated me before you. If you belonged to the world, the world would love you as its own; but because you do not belong to the world, because my choice of you has drawn you from the world, therefore the world hates you.
‘Remember the words I said to you: A servant is not greater than his master. If they persecuted me, they will persecute you too; if they kept my word, they will keep yours as well. But it will be on my account that they will do all this to you, because they do not know the one who sent me.’
Today's Pointers on God's Word
As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?
- Do you approach God confidently to ask Him for the things you need? God is all mercy and love and we can be certain of His promises to hear and grant us our prayers.
- In today’s Gospel Jesus assures His disciples in plain words that “The Father Himself loves you for loving me” We will surely experience our Father’s loving care in all our needs when we are able to love Jesus His Son more fully.
- One of the reasons why we feel our prayers are not answered by God is because we are not connected and personally united with Our Lord in our daily living and prayers. Ponder on this truth, in your daily living.
