Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Description: Reflection for the 3rd Sunday of Easter points out that God’s not expecting perfection from us on this side of heaven’s gate. What he does want, however, is our desire to become more and more like Christ every day. As long as we’re continually examining our lives and educating ourselves about how we can improve, and as long as we follow through by doing what is necessary to produce changes, God is very pleased with us. Now that we’re a renewed people – an Easter people – the scriptures at Mass remind us of the stark difference between living a redeemed life and living in sin.
We are all liars in some way every day, professing our faith with our lips but not always in our behaviors. Our actions often say that we don’t truly believe what we say about Christ’s love. Our worries might be saying that we don’t truly believe that God cares about each and every situation.
Ideas for use: Bulletin insert for the 3rd Sunday of Easter, adult education, faith sharing groups, RCIA class, etc.
