Gospel: John 6:16-21
“It is I. Do not be afraid”
A father died in his car to isolate himself from his loved ones. His sacrificial act led him to his last breath alone. Exactly what Jesus did, to save us all! These days, death is everywhere! Covid-19 second wave is hitting us harder so unlike the storms we had overcome, will this come to pass? The disciples caught in the storm must have felt death right before them. Yet when they saw Jesus , they felt secured. Yes, our global situation may be overwhelming . We heard what Jesus said - do not be afraid!
Let’s us hold on to his word . Let it be our source of strength. For His grace is sufficient for us in times of our need.
