Beloved, remember the words spoken beforehand by the Apostles of our Lord Jesus Christ. Build yourselves up in your most holy faith; pray in the Holy Spirit. Keep yourselves in the love of God and wait for the mercy of our Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life. On those who waver, have mercy; save others by snatching them out of the fire; on others have mercy with fear, abhorring even the outer garment stained by the flesh.
To the one who is able to keep you from stumbling and to present you unblemished and exultant, in the presence of his glory, to the only God, our savior, through Jesus Christ our Lord be glory, majesty, power, and authority from ages past, now, and for ages to come. Amen.
We are reminded in this reading that we must speak to those who sin and we must have patience with those who do not know any better. But we are also reminded of our duty to always speak with mercy. Our job on this earth is to spread Jesus’ message, to show His love and show others the way to Heaven. What is your mission?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, because of the mercy and forgiveness I have experienced I give you praise to all who will listen. I pray that they too will be open to receive what I have received and know the joy of living in your love. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
My soul is thirsting for you, O Lord my God.
