“NOW I HAVE SEEN AND TESTIFIED THAT HE IS THE SON OF GOD.” JN 1:29-34
Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through Mary and Joseph.
John the Baptist saw Jesus coming toward him and said,
“Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.
He is the one of whom I said,
‘A man is coming after me who ranks ahead of me
because he existed before me.’
I did not know him,
but the reason why I came baptizing with water
was that he might be made known to Israel.”
John testified further, saying,
“I saw the Spirit come down like a dove from heaven
and remain upon him.
I did not know him,
but the one who sent me to baptize with water told me,
‘On whomever you see the Spirit come down and remain,
he is the one who will baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.” JN 1:29-34
God has been doing a lot of speaking and revealing this week. Are we listening? Paul told us the Scriptures are a double edged sword, living and effective. They are timeless. The greatest worship we can experience is to be present with God.
God was present to John the Baptist, “Behold, the Lamb of God, who takes away the sin of the world.” Timeless. Today, at Mass in the Eucharistic Prayer all in attendance will hear the same words before they receive Jesus, Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. He is still present with us.
What do we need to realize that Jesus is present with us so that we too can testify, “Now I have seen and testified that he is the Son of God.”? God has never left His creation. Spend time seeking Him out and listening to what He wants to reveal to you.
Today’s challenge: Allow God to reveal Himself to you. Seek Him out. Listen to Him. He is trying to speak to us. Come Holy Spirit, teach me how to pray, interpret the Scriptures for me so I may know the Truth about who the Father and the Son are so I may know who I am.
Be a servant, be a saint today!
