Wednesday April 6
Jesus sets us absolutely free
  • Daniel 3:14-20, 91-92, 95
  • Daniel 3:52-56
  • John 8:31-42

Today’s Gospel proclamation reminds me of the time many years ago, how I was invited to the Wednesday prayer meetings many a time but refused to participate. I mainly refused because I thought I was fine and did not need changing. I also did not want to be seen as a religious buff especially to the ones closest to me. But today as I write this reflection I cannot thank God enough for intervening in my life for setting me free from the prison that I thought was a palace, for showing me that even in my pursuit of the adulation and satisfaction in the world, what I was doing was calling out to the Father in Heaven unknowingly, calling to be set free. It would be easy to call the Jews in today’s Gospel as foolish and proud, but that can include us as well, hence, it is the appropriate season to repent and seek in our heart what is imprisoning us? Are we refusing change? Are we seeking freedom in the things of the world, from people, apart from Christ? A broken world can give only broken solutions, true freedom can only be found in Jesus.

Prayer: Abba Father, I desire to seek true freedom in Christ alone. Amen.
