Wednesday 5 April
Wed 5th. Dn 3:14-20, 91-92, 95; Jn 8:31-42.
‘If you make my word your home you will indeed be my disciples, you will learn the truth and the truth will make you free.’ John 8:31-32
When Jesus asks me to make his word my home, he is asking me to follow his teachings so closely that my way of living follows his way of living. Just as a snail carries its shell and shelter upon its back, so also a Christian carries the word of Jesus wherever she goes. Being with Jesus is the same as being safe and warm at home, but the security he offers me is not in walls and beds, but in truth and freedom. This depth of Jesus’ truth is discovered in action rather than in recitation. In doing the truth I move from the world of darkness to the world of light. Jesus means freedom.
