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

A Quiet Place

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

May 12, A.D. 2001

Acts 13:44-52
Psalm 98:1-4
John 14:7-14

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

If we would only be able to avoid being faced with opposition when spreading the Word of God, it would surely make life a lot easier. One might think: "What real purpose does it really make?" It is like the refiner's fire, without enough heat to burn away the impurities, you have poor results. When we're faced with opposition as Paul was, our fidelity to our Christian belief is proven.

In John's Gospel, Jesus himself says that when we see and hear Him, we are also hearing and seeing the Father. Jesus also teaches us that when we live our lives as He has taught, others will see Jesus working through us. In living by the Word of God, we too, enflesh God Himself in our own time here on earth. So today, whether at work or at home, take one minute to quiet your mind and breathe in the Spirit that gives life, and breathe out any impurities that may hold you back from a full embrace with Jesus the Lord.
