Dearest Lord Jesus:

Forgive us when we forget that you are our only credential in life.

So many times, we get carried away by the world to always look into the scholastic and other credentials of people we wish to listen to and follow.

And the sad part of that is how we also tend to work for ourselves for so many achievements and titles just to have credentials so that people would believe us, people would look up to us.

Teach us to be like St. Paul in having you alone as the sole reason for whatever we do and pursue in life. Teach us to be simple like St. Paul in defending himself against detractors and critics, and in convincing others of his mission, he only had you as his credential.

Paul, a slave of Christ Jesus, called to be an Apostle and set apart for the Gospel of God… Through him we have received the grace of apostleship, to bring about the obedience of faith, for the sake of his name, among all the Gentiles, among whom are you also, who are called to belong Jesus Christ; to all the beloved of God in Rome called to be holy. Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.

Romans 1:1,5-7

Make us proud of you, Lord Jesus Christ!

Make us stop looking for more signs from you and from others.

Let us accept you as our Lord and Master who called us to follow you, to be like you. And sent to share your love and mercy, kindness and salvation. Amen.
