Jesus reveals himself to be the way, the truth, and life in our Gospel lesson today. Because of who our Lord is and what he done, no other holy person could hold a candle to how he connects us to our Heavenly and the promises he grants us.
Paul continues his corrective of the Galatian churches this Sunday by pointing out how the true Gospel transforms lives for the better…starting with his own life. May we all find the truth of the Good news and our own encounter with Jesus Christ proves equally transformational!
Today we begin the long haul through Ordinary Time. Today the lectionary readings also begin to work through St Paul’s letter to the Galatians. My prayer is that we don’t become swayed by a false gospel rooted in this material world, but in the promises of Christ’s kingdom we have by faith in his sacrifice upon the cross.
As we rejoice in who our Triune God is today, we looked at the broader context for the Gospel lesson in our lectionary readings for today. I pray as you read and reflect, you might find the God Jesus describes and the truth he preaches not merely interesting or enlightening, but heartening–preparing you to face any hardship life brings your way.
