Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my soul
  • Genesis 17:3-9
  • Psalm 105:4-9
  • John 8:51-59

As we journey through the season of Lent, today’s readings remind us of the importance of listening, trusting and obeying the word of God. In the first reading, we reflect on the everlasting covenant God made with Abraham. The Lord promises to be their God and gives them an inheritance of a land which would be theirs forever. The Gospel proclaims how God keeps to this promise through his son Jesus who speaks to the Jews, who were considered to be the descendants of Abraham. He reveals to them his divinity through the words “before Abraham came to be, I AM”. By this he invites them to accept the gift of eternal life by placing their trust in him. However, we see that the Jews were not willing to open their hearts and minds to the truth that Jesus was proclaiming. Jesus invites us to trust in him and accept him as the Lord and Saviour of our lives. Jesus who suffered, died and rose again, lives within those who accept him. Those who remain in his Word shall receive everlasting life.

Prayer: Abba Father, may I trust in your words with all my heart and remain faithful to you all the days of my life. Amen.
