Jesus is the name of the Living Word
Jesus lifted His eyes to heaven and prayed asking the Father to keep and protect us in his name; Jesus shared his joy to us completely and was sent in the world for us to be consecrated in the truth.
“Jesus” is the name of the living Word. Jesus is the fulfilment of the scripture. Jesus is The Word itself. The gospel is describing how powerful the Word of God is. The Word makes us one with God, the Word protects, the Word gives us complete joy and it also tells us the truth about our lives. That is how powerful and beautiful the word of God is!
Just as the Father has sent his Son to make the Word alive, Jesus is sending us to spread and be his living Word in the world of today. We are invited to pray deeper and see the beauty of the Word, and to experience the complete joy of Jesus. Let us allow that joy overflow in our hearts in such a way that it may fill the world through our lives by living and preaching the Word of God.
