Humbly submit your will to God (Thy Will be done) and consecrate yourself to Jesus through Mary.

Jesus said to his disciples:

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’
will enter the Kingdom of heaven,
but only the one who does the will of my Father in heaven.

“Everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them
will be like a wise man who built his house on rock.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
But it did not collapse; it had been set solidly on rock.
And everyone who listens to these words of mine
but does not act on them
will be like a fool who built his house on sand.
The rain fell, the floods came,
and the winds blew and buffeted the house.
And it collapsed and was completely ruined.” MT 7:21, 24-27

What is the “will of my Father”? We must read the Scriptures and Catechism to seek out the Truth Christ revealed about the will of the Father. If the true intention of our heart is to “enter the Kingdom of heaven”, we will seek Jesus and the Truth in the Scriptures and His life that enters us through a faithful sacramental life. Fr. Barron recommends we look at St Paul’s reading in Galatians 5 if you want to know if you are doing God’s Will.

Freedom for Service.
[j] 13 For you were called for freedom, brothers. But do not use this freedom as an opportunity for the flesh; rather, serve[k] one another through love. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one statement, namely, “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”[l] 15 But if you go on biting and devouring one another, beware that you are not consumed by one another.
16 I say, then: live by the Spirit and you will certainly not gratify the desire of the flesh.[m] 17 For the flesh has desires against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh; these are opposed to each other, so that you may not do what you want. 18 But if you are guided by the Spirit, you are not under the law. 19 [n]Now the works of the flesh are obvious: immorality, impurity, licentiousness, 20 idolatry, sorcery, hatreds, rivalry, jealousy, outbursts of fury, acts of selfishness, dissensions, factions,21 occasions of envy,[o] drinking bouts, orgies, and the like. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God. 22 In contrast, the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, 23 gentleness, self-control. Against such there is no law. 24 Now those who belong to Christ [Jesus] have crucified their flesh with its passions and desires. 25 If we live in the Spirit, let us also follow the Spirit. 26 Let us not be conceited, provoking one another, envious of one another. Gal 5:13-26
We can see if we are doing God’s will in our lives if we see the fruits of the Spirit in our lives.

Since Jesus Christ died and resurrected, we receive the Holy Spirit and the grace of God floods our heart and soul to wash away Original Sin and sanctifies us, makes us holy. We are branded with Christ. Holiness is perfection in God’s eyes, not doing everything perfect, being nervous about everything, worrying about everything, planning everything perfectly, but emptying self, putting on Christ and loving all those we encounter. Also, seeking out those who need our love outside our homes and jobs. We must be holy to enter heaven.

God is complete in Himself we cannot add anything to Him. Our lives are a complete gift, offer your life back to Him, doing His work and returning to Him sanctified like the day you were baptized. When we don’t, we lose the power of the Cross, Jesus’ death and resurrection for us. When we fall away from Jesus, He does not leave us. He stays planted firmly with us, waiting for us to return ready to give us love and mercy. We have every spiritual power in us, we have God in us in the Holy Spirit, we must take time to listen in silence each day to prepare for the battle that starts in our mind to what God has to say in our heart, then put on the armor of God and be ready for the battle to stay holy.

Today’s challenge: Learn to be still. Sit in silence and listen to God in your heart. If the fruits of the Spirit are not present in your life, ask God what you must do to change. Be a servant, fight for holiness, become a saint!

Be a servant become a saint!
