SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS John 6:41-51

Read 681 Times
1 Faith is reasonable but we cannot reason our way into faith. We have to be Ďdrawn by the Fatherí. We have to be Ďtaught by Godí. What opens your mind and heart to Godís message?

2 One thing which closes our minds to what another is saying is when we label them disparagingly, as the Jews did to Jesus. Have you ever had the experience of being surprised by the wisdom of another when you laid aside your prejudices about her/him to listen to what s/he was saying?

3 ĎNo one has ever seen the Father except the one who is from Godí. As Jesus put a human face on God and Godís love, so Godís love today is mediated to us through one another. How have other people been sacraments of Godís love for you? For whom have you been that kind of a sacrament?

4 The way in which Jesus became a source of life for us was by giving himself. It is when we truly give ourselves that we can be life-giving to one another. If we do not give of ourselves, what do we have to offer? How have you discovered the importance of self-giving, in yourself or in others?
