5th May 2020 - The message is clear

Once again, Jesus is questioned about his identity. Essentially, “Just tell us who you are.” Jesus responds by saying that he has told them previously that he and his Father are one, and that this has been shown through his works. Jesus then talks about faith and the importance of not only hearing his voice, but following him. His message is simple - It is through him and his Father that we are cared for and gain eternal life. Have faith in God and allow Him to guide us and we will never perish. Yes, doubt is natural, but by listening to and truly hearing the word of God we gain comfort and inspiration to move beyond. Just as the disciples were able to persevere after persecution and even the death of Stephen, so too can we. Yes, we will continue to confront struggles in our daily lives, but take comfort that we are accompanied by our Father. The message is clear – listen to the word, be strong in faith, and we will be in our Father’s hand. Makes me smile just thinking about it!
