WORD OF GOD - LK 17:17-19

LUKE 17:17-19

Then Jesus asked, ‘Were not ten made clean? But the other nine, where are they? Was none of them found to return and give praise to God except this foreigner?’ Then he said to him, ‘Get up and go on your way; your faith has made you well.’

---- mine,

Too often you are numbered among the nine who did not return to give praise to God for all the mercies He has shown you, the love He has showered on you, the graces He makes available to you constantly. Do not delay in acknowledging all that God has done for you it is in praise that God is made present in your life. The more you praise, thank and worship God, the more you become aware of God's goodness and your complete dependence on Him. Contemplate God's love made visible and tangible in Me.  Contemplate the love of the Holy Spirit who pours out His gifts to all who ask. The Holy Spirit is the power that enables you to have communion with God. You have much to thank God for and you will never run out of opportunities to do so - do not take the gifts of God for granted but return continually to give praise and thanks to God who loves you so much He lay down His life so you may be where He is for all eternity.

WORD OF GOD - LK 21:14-15

LUKE 21:14-15

So make up your minds not to prepare your defence in advance; for I will give you words and a wisdom that none of your opponents will be able to withstand or contradict.

---- mine,

All you need to evangelize is to be imbued in My Word and My Spirit. Trust Me and My Spirit will empower you and arm you. He will provide all you need. You, on your part, prayer, and allow your entire being to be disposed to My will. Love. Be gentle, kind, tender, patient, remember each one is on their own journey to the Kingdom of God. True, some make the journey harder for themselves because they do not know, be kind, humble, and gentle. Listen, listening is more important than blabbering like Job's friends who were clueless about Job. He was more righteous before God than all of them put together. So listen, sometimes it is all that is required. And pray. Lean on the Holy Spirit and be ready to respond according to the Holy Spirit's prompting.
