Thirty-fourth Week in Ordinary Time
Saying ‘yes’ to God’s will
  • Daniel 7:2-14
  • Daniel 3:75-81
  • Luke 21:29-33

In today’s Gospel proclamation, Jesus says: “Heaven and earth will pass away but my words will not pass away”. These words are familiar to many of us and they may sound cliché. What is the purpose of trusting the word of God? It is to draw strength to walk in holiness, saying ‘yes’ to the will of God for our lives. It is to ensure that we do not lose heaven under any circumstance. Many are the challenges we will have to face as we tarry through this life.

The Lord himself said that in this world there will be trouble. As the Word of God proclaims today, we are to be alert to know the signs of the coming of the Kingdom of God. The key is to be connected to God, as a branch is to the vine, through a consistent and genuine prayer life. In that way, we are assured that the wisdom of the Holy Spirit will always guide us. Let us give priority to be deeply connected to God. Let us not doubt the mighty power of the Word of God and it will always be fulfilled and bear fruit, according to God’s will.

Prayer: Abba Father, hold me close as the vine is to a branch so that your unfailing Word will protect me. Amen.
