Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

October 14, A.D. 2004

Scripture from Today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ephesians 1:1-10
Psalm 98:1-6
Luke 11:47-54

A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:

He chose us in Him, before the foundation of the world,

Blessed be God,

Blessed be His mighty works.

Blessed be God in His Blessings and in His Person.

By some great mystery, He chose us to be brothers and sisters of Jesus Christ before the world began. He knew us and loved us into being and into a family with Him. We can still refuse to accept our adoption. We can be rebellious and difficult children. Nevertheless, He chose us and continues to choose us no matter how we battle against Him.

We are adopted Children of God become as fleshly children of God through the Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ shed for us. Washed white in that sacred Blood, we become heirs of the King and we partake of all that He is. Through being children, we have some stake in becoming like Him in all things. We have as our example our brother, teacher, and savior Jesus Christ. Through our election we have as our guide the Holy Spirit of God. And bringing all together in the one Godhead, we have the Father who loves us with a tenderness far beyond that of any earthly Father and who wills all good for us.

Thank you Lord, for your blessing.

Thank you Lord, for your election.

Thank you Lord, for the family you have gathered to yourself through your Son, Jesus Christ.

Thank you Lord, my Father.
