We often claim to be believers. Some would prefer to use the word good, staunch or practising Christian. However, many times those appellations can hardly be said to be true of us. For we often seek to interpret God’s word to suit our purposes. Yet even Jesus was obedient to the laws he being divine had given through Moses (Luke 2:21-24).

In our times, avowed adherents of the Christian faith have voted in favour of objectively anti-Christian legislation. Hence, John the Apostle reminds us that it is only faithful obedience to God’s words that makes us true believers (1 John 2:3). Anything short of that simply makes us hypocrites (1 John 2:4).

Reflection Passages For Today: 1 John 2:3-11; Psalm 95(96):1-3,5-6; Luke 2:22-35



And “You will be enriched in every way for your great generosity, which will produce thanksgiving to God through us” – 2 Corinthians 9:11
