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.
December 5, 2019 – Thursday
Gospel: Matthew 7:21, 24-27
“... like a wise man who built his house on rock.”
Jesus says that not all who hears his word will go to heaven, but only the one who does the will of the Father. If you listen to His word and act on it, it’s like building your house on solid rock. Build your faith and beliefs on strong foundation. Neither rain nor strong winds will run it aground, nor make it collapse.
How do we see ourselves now in our level of spiritual maturity? Still lukewarm, sometimes hot, sometimes cold? Not fully convinced yet? Have we fully surrendered our hearts, minds and souls to Christ Jesus? If you have, no matter how heavy the trials we may face, we are not discouraged nor afraid. Do we greet it with a smile and say “Bring it on, problem!”
We pray that we be made more sturdy and not crack along the way, to face the many storms of life with the help of Mama Mary and Jesus.
