We need the Word in our lives, to nourish and give us life. It is our everlasting connection with our loving God. When we remain steadfast in our love for God and stay focused on our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, we are able preach and give testimony and bring others to the same faith. We are emboldened and fearless for Jesus is with us.

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. Amen

First Reading
Acts 5:27-33

Gospel
Jn 3:31-36

The one who comes from above is above all. The one who is of the earth is earthly and speaks of earthly things. But the one who comes from heaven is above all. He testifies to what he has seen and heard, but no one accepts his testimony. Whoever does accept his testimony certifies that God is trustworthy. For the one whom God sent speaks the words of God. He does not ration his gift of the Spirit. The Father loves the Son and has given everything over to him. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever disobeys the Son will not see life, but the wrath of God remains upon him.

In times of crisis, when everything seems cold and bleak, we have nothing to fear. For when we have faith in Jesus, He will carry us through it all.

However there are many out there who have yet to share in the certainty that we have. Our loving Saviour that gives us love, peace and joy. We have the living Word to nourish, sustain and provide for all that we need. Such is the love contained therein, that it is outward looking waiting to be shared in abundance with all.

Jesus guide me, that I may to share Your Word with all whom I meet. Amen

First Reading
Acts 6:1-7

Gospel
Jn 6:16-21

When it wlas evening, the disciples of Jesus went down to the sea, embarked in a boat, and went across the sea to Capernaum. It had already grown dark, and Jesus had not yet come to them. The sea was stirred up because a strong wind was blowing. When they had rowed about three or four miles, they saw Jesus walking on the sea and coming near the boat, and they began to be afraid. But he said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” They wanted to take him into the boat, but the boat immediately arrived at the shore to which they were heading.
