Walking in Spirit and Peace
Readings for 12-13 Make straight the way of the Lord!
All of the Readings for this Mass contain very important messages?
1st Reading from Isaiah IS 61:1-2A, 10-11—The Spirit of the Lord is upon me….bring glad tidings to the poor…
2nd Reading from 1 Thessalonians 1 THES 5:16-24—Are you all in?
May the God of peace himself make you perfectly holy and may you entirely, spirit, soul, and body, be preserved blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
Gospel JN 1:6-8, 19-28—I am a voice crying out in the desert…
We can only point to the Savior and remember it’s not “I.” We are not God. We don’t have all the answers. Paul’s wish for the Thessalonians echoes through the centuries to us today. May God make us perfectly holy in spirit, soul and body. That we may be preserved all the way to the end. Paul leaves out our mind in this Scripture. We don’t have to know all the answers. We need to trust that the God of peace himself will do all the work in us.
Prepare: Read those Scriptures again. The one who calls you is faithful, and he will accomplish it. Let the Lord in so he can work in your life. Surrender. You will be amazed at what God can do in your life if you let him! By the way, it’s Gaudete Sunday, rejoice! and repeat! Experience joy and then do it again! That St. Paul said to rejoice, pray always and give thanks in every circumstance! 1 Thessalonians Chapter 5
