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

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

September 2, A.D. 2008

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

1 Corinthians 2:10b-16
Psalm 145:8-9, 10-11, 12-13ab, 13cd-14
Luke 4:31-37

A reflection on today's Scripture:

What Is There About His Word. . . .

What is there about the word that Jesus gives us?

Because the word He gives us is nothing less than Himself; it is pure and it is God itself. His word is all Authority because His word is a part of Him. There is nothing else but Him in it.

When we read the Bible, we are reading His word. It is a word that teaches with absolute authority, but it is a word that must be approached in all humility, a word that demands that we learn before we try to teach. Too many people approach the Word already knowing what it means and all too willing to tell everyone else what it means. The Word of God demands that we be willing to hear God and to listen to what is said. That is the word of authority.

God blesses us in so many ways. We receive Him, body and blood, soul and divinity, in the Most Holy Eucharist. We receive Him completely in His word, when we bow before it and allow ourselves to be instructed. His Word is all authority and all light because it is inseparable from Him. He blesses us with the blessings of His word, and His word is sufficient to drive out all evil. Thank God each day as you ponder His Holy word, His holy gift to us.
