40 DAYS JOURNEY WITH THE LORD.
Moderated by Fr Justin Nzekwe
DAILY CHALLENGE: Go to mass, make out time to pray in the church after mass or in the grotto
DAILY THEME: Your Salvation in free.
THINK ABOUT THIS: Do not continue to run after material things that cost you so much and worth less. The Lord invites you to a banquet of free drink, milk and free food. You will drink and thirst no more. Just listen to the Word of God, and he will establish a covenant with you.
Change your evil ways and return to God, for he will forgive your sins and restore his blessings to you.
Bible Reading – Isaiah 55:1-7
“Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. Why do you spend money for what is not bread, And your wages for what does not satisfy? Listen carefully to Me, and eat what is good, And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Incline your ear, and come to Me.
Hear, and your soul shall live; And I will make an everlasting covenant with you— The sure mercies of David. Indeed I have given him as a witness to the people, A leader and commander for the people.
Surely you shall call a nation you do not know, And nations who do not know you shall run to you, Because of the LORD your God, And the Holy One of Israel; For He has glorified you.” Seek the LORD while He may be found, Call upon Him while He is near. Let the wicked forsake his way,
And the unrighteous man his thoughts; Let him return to the LORD, And He will have mercy on him; And to our God, For He will abundantly pardon.
PRAY WITH ME
Lord, I know you are the fountain of life and holiness. You are the source of everything that is good. I come to you that you may give me a new life, and a new spirit. Help me to overcome my weakness and sins that pull me down. Help me to live a life in the spirit, so as to attract your favours unto my life. Give me that water that will never allow me grow thirsty again, for I want more of you, Jesus. Let the Holy Spirit also accompany me to make this journey faithfully to the end, so that it may bear a lasting fruit in my life. Amen.
