Reflections of Faith
Read and be inspired by a reflection based on today's Gospel made by members of the Verbum Dei Family in Manila.
April 11, 2019 – Thursday
Gospel: John 8:51-59
"I know Him and I keep His word." (cf. John 8:55)
Today’s Gospel continues to show us the scene of Jews throwing their questions of doubts to Jesus’ descent. They even wanted to throw stones at Him when they can’t fathom anymore His testimonies.
It might be unusual for others to know that one has a “personal relationship” with God as a Father. God being with us through Jesus aimed for us to know Him more and to have a personal relationship with Him as our Father. He wants us to hear His words and believe in the love that He has for us.
May we be open to communication with God as our Father who wants to be closer to our lives.
