READ:

“Jesus said to the Jews: ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, whoever keeps My word will never see death.’   So the Jews said to Him, ‘Now we are sure that You are possessed.  Abraham died, as did the prophets, yet You say, ‘Whoever keeps My word will never taste death.’ Are You greater than our father Abraham, who died?  Or the prophets, who died? Who do You make yourself out to be?’  Jesus answered, ‘If I glorify Myself, My glory is worth nothing; but it is My Father who glorifies Me, of whom you say, ‘He is our God.’  You do not know Him, but I know Him. And if I should say that I do not know Him, I would be like you a liar.  But I do know Him and I keep His word. Abraham your father rejoiced to see My day; he saw it and was glad.’ So the Jews said to him, ‘You are not yet fifty years old and You have seen Abraham?’ Jesus said to them, ‘Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham came to be, I AM.’ So they picked up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid and went out of the temple area.”

-John 8:51-59

REFLECT:

Today our Lord tells us plainly who He is.  He is I Am, the one true God, Creator of heaven and earth, the Alpha and Omega (beginning and the end).  So we can ask: Is that who Jesus is for me?  Do I trust Him when things are falling apart?  Do I love others even when it hurts?  Do I proclaim the truth in charity even when it is inconvenient and I must suffer for it?  Do I accept the cross in my life and believe in the power of Christ to resurrect all things, achieving an even greater good?  Am I all in for Jesus?  These are the most important questions we can ask in this brief life.  May God give us the moral courage to serve Him with undivided hearts.

RESPOND:

Ask Jesus to give you a zeal for Him and a great love for His Mother.
