Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 10, A.D. 2001

Acts 13:13-25
Psalm 89:2-3,21-22,25,27
John 13:16-20

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

Today we read how Jesus humbled Himself in a way that most of us would never think imagine. Washing your guests' feet at the dinner table would never do in our society. Jesus showed both humility and obedience to the Father. In the same way, Paul demonstrated his willingness to tell the people about the Messiah, Jesus -- the same Paul who tormented the Jews and stood by as Stephen was stoned to death. John the Baptist also humbled himself telling everyone that he was not who they thought he was but to look for the One who was coming after him. So humble was John, that he felt unworthy to take Jesus' sandals off his feet.

Where are you in this fourth week of Easter? Are you still rejoicing, with Alleluias ringing in your mind? Psalm 89 tells us we should be singing the goodness of the Lord! Are you?

This holy season of Easter should truly be a time of rejoicing when we think of what the Lord has done for us. We who have found Jesus, who worship and adore Him, are blessed by Him daily. Who can you serve in a most humble way today? Family? Friend? Stranger? Tell them how the Lord is working in your life; tell them how much He loves you and then, how kind and merciful is His love. It's a wonderful blessing to reach out to others, imitating Christ and bringing His love and humility to everyone you meet.

Jesus, you are my Lord and Savior,
Help me to spread your Good News,
to everyone I pray for and meet each day.
