Lenten prayer reflection

Mar 18 2015

JN 5:17-30
In today’s gospel passage, we are invited to know God the Father more deeply. Jesus tells us that he does nothing on his own, rather through God. Those who know Jesus will know the Father. It is a reminder that if we listen to The message of Christ, if we pray and have an open heart and live out His message as best we can, then we are living out the will of the Father. It is truly humbling to hear these words. Christ, the Word incarnate, subjects Himself to the will of the Father. If this is true, then we too, should be so humble. Why do we try to control the whole world? Why do we try to control the whole world? Listening to Christ, living His message, it frees us to a life with less anxiety and worry. This Lent, let us humble ourselves like Christ and get to know the Father through the Son.
