1 Peter 2:4-9
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
"I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"
Jesus is the Way to the Father because He and the Father are One. We enter
and remain One with He who is the Way, through the prayerful and sacramental
joining of our wills, as He leads, guides, and takes us through Himself to
Jesus is the Truth and testifies, "...the Father who dwells in me is doing
His works." He encourages us, "You will do greater works than these because
I am going to the Father." Jesus reminds us as we remain in union with Him,
we too will do the works of the One who dwells in us. These 'works' are the
work of bringing souls to eternal Life in the fullness of Truth Who is the
Way to the Father.
Jesus is the Life. He and the Father share the work of creating our temporal
and mortal life so that we may freely choose to remain with them eternally.
They are the source and the communion of all who would will to be eternally
One. It is through Jesus, our Way that we are restored to eternal Life with
God. Our sins that separate us from God are remitted by Jesus' perfect
sacrificial offering to the Father. Apart from Jesus, Who is the 'place,'
for us to remain one in God, we have no Life.
O Lord, help us to see that You are truly the Way for us to live eternally
with You and the Father in the Holy Spirit. Amen
