Truth, Faith, Hope
God brings us truth. Take some time today for Lectio Divina. Read this Gospel the first time, taking in what is happening. The second time, read through and pick out one or two phrases that stand out to you and hold them in your heart. The third time, read through and consider how God is speaking to you through this reading. Then take some time to pray and reflect.
Today's Gospel states: 'And now I am no more in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to thee. Holy Father, keep them in thy name, which thou hast given me, that they may be one, even as we are one. While I was with them, I kept them in thy name, which thou hast given me; I have guarded them, and none of them is lost but the son of perdition, that the scripture might be fulfilled. But now I am coming to thee; and these things I speak in the world, that they may have my joy fulfilled in themselves. I have given them thy word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I do not pray that thou shouldst take them out of the world, but that thou shouldst keep them from the evil one. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them in the truth; thy word is truth. As thou didst send me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be consecrated in truth' (John 17:11-19).
God brings us truth. Through Jesus, we are given the truth, and we too are called to bring this truth of God's love to the world. In order to be bringers of truth, we first need to seek God's truth. Every day, we need to take time with God, seeking His will and growing closer in relationship. Have you been taking time to seek God's truth?
Today we pray:
Thank You for all that You do for me in my life. Thank You for Your great truth. Please help em to seek Your truth and bring it to those around me. I pray in Your most holy name, Amen.
