Doctrines & Morals

Friday, April 27, 2018; 4th Week of Easter

Acts 13:26-33; Ps 2:6-7, 8-9, 10-12ab; John 14:1-6
My Morning Minute With Jesus
“Do not let your hearts be troubled.”
Amidst the troubles and uncertainties of life, our grasp on life becomes quite slippery, and we are tempted to lose our confidence in God. Today’s readings reassure us that God is trustworthy, so also is Jesus. Paul reminds us that God fulfils His promises at the appointed time. His word never fails. We must, therefore, patiently lock into God’s time. In the Gospel, Jesus encourages us to trust in God and to trust in Him even in the most uncertain of times (death). The devastating effects of death can disrupt our existence, but the one who is the Way, the Truth and the Life, is in charge. He is the good shepherd, who never leaves his flock untended and cares for his own, in life and in death. Let us follow him in all life’s situations: no matter where life’s journey takes us, He is with us, and constantly nudging us: “Do not let your hearts be troubled.” While casting our fears on Jesus, we must open our hearts to the healing that comes from Jesus, following the death of loved ones.
Prayer: Lord, lead me on the path of life eternal. Amen.
