The Lord Is Faithful

god-is-faithful

Whenever I read these words, “The Lord Is Faithful In All His Words” which comes from today’s Responsorial Psalm 145, my first thought is I am not faithful. In my journey through life I have made so many mistakes, taken so many people for granted and selfishly put me first above others. But, because God is faithful, He tells and shows us through scripture that He, though almighty and powerful, is a very loving and merciful God.

There is still hope for me and all, that through His grace, He will make us strong enough to walk the straight and narrow path with Him, and one day enter through the narrow gate that he speaks about in today’s Gospel from Luke 13:22-30. May God have mercy on us all.

The Lord Is Faithful

Tell The Good News

good-news-614-284x174

This is today’s Responsorial Psalm 117:

R. Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.
Praise the LORD, all you nations, glorify him, all you peoples!
R. 
Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.
For steadfast is his kindness toward us, and the fidelity of the LORD endures forever.
R. 
Go out to all the world, and tell the Good News.

What kind of good news will I tell today in my little world? Will I tell the good news of Jesus Christ? If so, how will I tell the good news?

I just want to share that in my passion and love for Jesus, I have done some good and some bad in telling the good news. I have probably pushed people further away from Jesus with my exuberance. Some people have me shaking my head because of their exuberance for Christ. We can all do and say some pretty unkind, judgmental and unmerciful things in our love for the Lord.

So today, in trying to understand the Psalmist, I am to tell the good news by praising the Lord, telling of his unwavering kindness toward us and that God is faithful in His promises to us even when we are unfaithful to Him and His fidelity endures forever. That is very good news for a sinful world to hear. May His will be done. Amen.
