WE ARE GREATER THAN JOHN THE BAPTIST! The greatness of what we do and who we are cannot be based on our own strength but purely on the grace of God. What made John the Baptist great was that he allowed the grace of God to operate in and through him. The gift of sonship is not within our power but can only be received as a gift. For this reason, we are greater than John the Baptist because the Holy Spirit lives in us and makes us His adopted sons and daughters. This great dignity that is bestowed on us comes purely from His grace alone. We do not deserve to be God’s children. But He chose us in Christ, just as He chose Israel to be His people out of His goodness and bounty. What does it take for His kingdom to work in our lives?

OVERCOME WEARINESS WITH CHRIST Anything that is done for love will not dissipate us. Instead it will only empower us to do more. When sacrifices are done for the sake of love, there is no competition, no anxiety and no expectations. Only when we work for ourselves, do we find tensions.

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.
