DAILY REFLECTION FOR THURSDAY OF THE 5TH WEEK OF EASTER
THEME: REMAIN IN MY LOVE
BY: SR. J. K. OSIYEMI, EHJ
REFLECTION FOR THURSDAY MAY 19 2022
Jn 15: 9 – 11.
Jesus loves me in the same way that he is loved by God. To reap the benefits of this love I must obey God’s commandments. Jesus wants me to abide in his love. He wants me to obey the Father’s laws and experience great joy. Do I keep or break God’s commandment to worship him alone, respect his name, honour my parents, etc? Am I truly inwardly joyful with the joy of the Lord who is my strength? Am I a joy killer or joy giver?
LET US PRAY
Lord Jesus, may I remain always in your love and peace as I make effort to obey your laws. I am sorry for the times I have not heeded your command to remain in your love. Help me to realize that it is only if I abide in you that I will experience fullness of joy. Grant me the peace and joy that comes from loving, serving and obeying you. Amen.
