The power that comes forth from Christ
  • Colossians 2:6-15
  • Psalm 145:1-11
  • Luke 6:12-19

Prayer is the most powerful connection that Jesus always made with the Father, not only was it a special moment of intimacy but also established his mission in fulfillment of the Father’s will. My food is to do the will of the Father he said. And so, it is for us all. In accepting his will, we are empowered to do the mission he has called us for. Saint Paul while he is advising the Colossians to be aware of false prophets, beautifully expresses how rooted we are in Christ through the power of his resurrection, we are purified sanctified and justified through his precious blood.

Christ is alive! We need to keep reminding ourselves of this, because we can risk seeing Jesus Christ as a fine model from the distant past. As a memory of someone who saved us. But that would be of no use to us: it would leave us unchanged: It would not set us free. The one who fills us with his grace, the one who liberates us, transforms us, heals, and consoles us is someone fully alive. He is the Christ, risen from the dead, filled with supernatural life.

Prayer: Heavenly Father, may the power of the resurrection take root in our lives, empowering us to do your Holy will always. Amen
