Daily Bible Verse 101
Wednesday, May 02, 2018
Have you not seen that all you need has been provided by God's gracious Providence.

"If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask for whatever you want and it will be done for you." (John 15: 7).

Let us be honest. Do you believe that if you ask for whatever you want, it will be given to you? If you do not believe this, you call Jesus a Liar. A Liar with a big "L" since He is God.

The truth that God provides all our needs in a timely manner is an idea that is found throughout sacred scripture. Amazingly, this is also the constant teaching of the Church from time immemorial. Yet, ask any man on the street whether he believes that God is supplying everything he needs in a timely manner and you may notice some doubts and hesitations.

God's gracious and loving providence is expressed in this line in a song used frequently by the Church:

"Have you not seen All you have needed has been met by His gracious ordaining?"

"Gracious ordaining" means of course God's providence. The first time I became aware of this song in a worship service, I said to myself, "Wait a minute. This isn't my experience."
I thought about it at the time and decided that this question like many questions about faith and religion is simply too mysterious. I now realize that this attitude was an error born of unbelief. What I should have done was to challenge God in prayer to show me how He met all my needs by His gracious ordaining.

But recently, as I read and reflect more on the subject of Prayer, I begin to get some insight. The key to understanding the question is this important teaching of Jesus:

"What father among you would hand his son a snake when he asks for a fish? Or hand him a scorpion when he asks for an egg?
If you then, who are wicked, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will the Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him?" (Luke 11: 11 -13)

Yes indeed. God provides all our necessities according to His gracious and loving Providence. Trust that the Father knows exactly what you need and when you need it.

"By this is my Father glorified, that you bear much fruit and become my disciples." (John 15: 8).

The Holy Spirit is the Deep Memory of the Church.

"I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit whom the Father will send in my name – he will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you." (John 14: 25 - 26).

Jesus taught with authority. He is still teaching today with authority through His Church. The Holy Spirit is the Help and Teacher. He is the deep memory of the Church. "Whoever listens to you listens to me. Whoever rejects you rejects me. And whoever rejects me rejects the one who sent me." (Luke 10: 16).

Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for the Holy Spirit, they shall be satisfied (Cf Matthew 5:6).

Paul is My chosen instrument to carry My Name to the world.

"Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?" He said, "Who are you, sir?" The reply came, "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting." (Acts 9: 4-5).

Today is Friday, April 20 in the 3rd Week of Easter. We interrupt the Bread of Life Discourse to savor the Conversion of St Paul. The gentle breath of the LORD Jesus knocked Saul off his horse. Blinded by the dazzling light coming from the Redeemer, Paul was led by hand into the city of Damascus where Saul met Ananias.

"Go, for this man is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before Gentiles, kings, and Israelites, and I will show him what he will have to suffer for my name." (Acts 9: 15 - 16).

Here we witness Divine Intervention creating a unique Divine Mission. Welcome Rabbi Saul to the Church.
A good part of Sacred Scripture is actual human experience that becomes a template for the life of faith. Every day, God is creating your own scripture through your daily experiences. Be proactive in this process through the Sacrament of the Present Moment.

"Saul, my brother, the Lord has sent me, Jesus who appeared to you on the way by which you came, that you may regain your sight and be filled with the holy Spirit." (Acts 9: 17).

Filled with the Holy Spirit, Saul did not waste a moment before he started proclaiming Jesus in the synagogues as the Son of God. (Acts 9: 20).

The ABC of Evangelization

"Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them: "Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned." (Mark 16: 15 - 16).

Today is the Feast St Mark the Evangelist. Happy feast day to all my friends named Mark. God endowed Mark with the grace not just to preach the Gospel but to be author of what is considered the first Gospel and mother of all the Gospels.

Jesus gives us the Great Commission: "Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature." What exactly are we to proclaim? We are to proclaim Christ crucified as the power of God and the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1: 23 - 24). Note that we are not called to be philosophers or theologians but simply to share the Good News that Christ was dead. Christ is risen from the dead. Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead. It is as simple as ABC because God wants everyone to be involved.

"They went forth and preached everywhere, while the Lord worked with them and confirmed the word through accompanying signs." (Mark 16: 20).
Amen. Alleluia!
God Never Fails. He is faithful.
"Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." (Matthew 28: 20).

Man needs the food for the Journey.

"Do not work for food that perishes but for the food that endures for eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you." (John 6: 27).

What is Jesus saying here? Abandon your job and go searching for some mystical food? To understand what Jesus means, we need to bring other scriptures.
"One does not live by bread alone,
but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God." (Matthew 4: 4). One does not live by money alone... One does not live by job alone... One does not live by home or cars alone..
Man is created to live for ever. So he needs spiritual food as well.

What does it profit a man to gain the whole world and at the end of the game to lose his soul? (Mark 6: 36).
To win in the game of life, you must keep the big picture in mind. Jesus could not have come from heaven and lived among us and suffered the cruel agony we all witnessed on Good Friday just to procure for us the food that is eaten and quickly passes through to the latrine. (Cf Mark 7: 19).

Jesus is offering us Himself as food. TAKE AND EAT. TAKE AND DRINK. IT IS ME.
The Eucharist is the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. It is the medicine of immortality and the Food for the Journey. (St Ignatius of Antioch). It is the food that is guaranteed to kill the appetite for lust, greed for filthy lucre and all other debased desires that poison and imprison the hearts and minds of women and men of this age.

"And Jesus said unto them, I am the bread of life: he that cometh to me shall never hunger; and he that believeth on me shall never thirst." (John 6: 35).
