Praise and glory to you, O Lord Jesus Christ, whose name alone is so powerful and merciful, always taken for granted by those who refuse to enter into a deep communion and friendship with you.
See what love the Father has bestowed on us that we may be called the children of God. Yet so we are. The reason the world does not know us is that it did not know him. Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is. You know that he was revealed to take away sins, and in him there is no sin.2 John 3:1-2, 5
So many times Lord, we take your love for granted.
Most of the time, we take you for granted.
Give us the courage to testify to your most Holy Name, your holy presence like John the Baptizer.
May our lives be a witnessing to your love and mercy, kindness and justice as we try our very best to spread your good news of salvation from sins. Amen.
