THE TRIUMPH OF LIFE, LOVE AND JUSTICE In raising Christ who was condemned as a criminal, God endorsed Jesus as the Son of God, and all that He said and did. With His resurrection, everything makes sense to us. His death was thought to be a tragedy, but it was God’s way of destroying death forever by raising Jesus up. His suffering was not an end in itself but the way to fullness of life. Death is not the last word. Neither is hatred which is overcome by love. In His resurrection, we see that justice and truth prevail in the end. The just and good will ultimately triumph in the end.

20 APRIL, 2019, Easter Vigil

DELIVERED FROM SLAVERY TO SIN AND DEATH The death of Christ is the act of total giving of God to the world. By dying to sin, to hatred, unforgiveness and revenge, Jesus shows us that the way to live is through the giving of oneself to others unconditionally and selflessly. By giving up His life for us all in love, service and forgiveness, He shows us how to overcome the evils of this world. Death is not something to be feared but it is an act of self-giving to God and to our fellowmen. By rising from the dead, He tells us that death is not the end of life but the beginning of the fullness of life.

Best Practices for Using the Daily Scripture Reflections
  • Encounter God through the spirit of prayer and the scripture by reflecting and praying the Word of God daily. The purpose is to bring you to prayer and to a deeper union with the Lord on the level of the heart.
  • Daily reflections when archived will lead many to accumulate all the reflections of the week and pray in one sitting. This will compromise your capacity to enter deeply into the Word of God, as the tendency is to read for knowledge rather than a prayerful reading of the Word for the purpose of developing a personal and affective relationship with the Lord.
  • It is more important to pray deeply, not read widely. The current reflections of the day would be more than sufficient for anyone who wants to pray deeply and be led into an intimacy with the Lord.

Note: You may share this reflection with someone. However, please note that reflections are not archived online, nor will they be available via email request.
