STAYING FOCUSED UNDER TRIALSometimes, we are abandoned in our mission. Regardless, we should not allow such trials to distract us from our mission. We must remain focused on our mission. However, the call to proclaim the gospel is not for the weak and faint-hearted but the strong. A weak faith cannot sustain us in the apostolate. We need to learn to depend on the Lord. We cannot depend on our own strength and efforts alone. Only then can we remain focused and transcend our enemies.

OVERCOMING LAWLESSNESS AND LEGALISM IN THE SPIRITWe must allow the laws to guide us in our daily life, but we must invite the Spirit of God to lead us and empower us to love and serve God and others. But we “cannot belong to Christ Jesus unless (we) crucify all self-indulgent passions and desires.” Only Christ can help us to overcome legalism and lawlessness by showing us the light and love of the laws.

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.
