MIRACLES AND PREACHING In the final analysis, the purpose of miracles and preaching is to lead a person to the Lord. Healing miracles do not always happen. Otherwise, we would live for eternity on this earth. Those of us who are healed will one day fall sick again. More importantly, salvation is not just the body but also the soul, the entire being. It is to live the life of Christ in love.

MISSION OF BUILDING A NEW HEAVEN AND A NEW EARTH What is your hope for the world tomorrow? What is your dream? The problem is that most of us are either happy to drift along in life, or we have small dreams only. Today’s scripture readings urge us to dream BIG. John saw “a new heaven and a new earth”. “(God) will wipe away all tears from their eyes; there will be no more death, and no more mourning or sadness.” “Here God lives among men. He will make his home among them; they shall be his people, and he will be their God; his name is God-with-them.” How can we realize this vision that God has for humanity and creation?

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.
