SATURDAY (June 6, 2020)
In the name of the Father and of the + Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
“On the last day of the feast, the great day, Jesus stood up and cried out, “If anyone thirsts, let him come to me and drink.” (John 7:37)
“Good and upright is the LORD; therefore he instructs sinners in the way. He leads the humble in what is right, and teaches the humble his way. All the paths of the LORD are steadfast love and faithfulness, for those who keep his covenant and his testimonies. For your name’s sake, O LORD, pardon my guilt, for it is great. Who is the man who fears the LORD? Him will he instruct in the way that he should choose. His soul shall abide in well-being, and his offspring shall inherit the land. The friendship of the LORD is for those who fear him, and he makes known to them his covenant. My eyes are ever toward the LORD, for he will pluck my feet out of the net.” (Psalms 25:8–15)
The ways of the LORD are true and trustworthy, leading to life and peace. The way we often choose is anything but trustworthy, often leading to chaos. God’s way is Truth, Mercy and Love. God’s way is His nature. This reality never changes. This is our security. So let us look with the eyes of faith to the LORD.
