March 30, A.D. 2004


Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Numbers 21:4-9
Psalm 102:2-3,16-21
John 8:21-30


A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:


"For if you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins."

Jesus is the eternal I AM. He is not to be found in just in our memories of the past or our visions of the future...Jesus is now!
We sin when we become preoccupied with the desires and motivations of our mind which is flawed and prone to dysfunction. Living in our mind alone takes us out of the present moment. When we live in the present moment -- focusing on where we are, what we are doing right now at this moment in time -- we live in grace, in eternity, in God's time...

Prayer centers us on the present moment...it brings us into Jesus' presence...right Now. Jesus asks us to leave tomorrow's worries and troubles alone and focus on the NOW.

So today, let us begin to live eternity...focusing on being fully alive and present in every moment. By doing this we are growing in the presence of Jesus, creating healing and bringing truth to humankind.
