About Today Readings

St John I

The Spirit of truth will be my witness

Acts 16:11-15. The Lord takes delight in his people – Psalm 149:1-6, 9. John 15:26-16:4.

We know God because his Spirit lives within us. In knowing Jesus we are able to understand how we can build a new and better world by loving like him. It’s the Advocate who guides us in this relationship. The choices we make each day are informed by our ability to connect with and discern the better choice. In our lives we will be persecuted and rejected. People we seek to harm us and push us down. Our reaction to these situations is based on choice. In a moment of persecution or rejection we can choose to reflect and discern the better choice as guided by the Spirit. In doing so we are able to navigate the challenge in a manner that honours our Lord and become more whole. Choosing to react without discernment will only allow us to respond according to our human nature. We are created for greater things.
