A KNOW-NO?

 
"I wept bitterly because no one could be found worthy to open or examine the scroll." —Revelation 5:4
 

What is God's plan for the world and for your life? If you don't know God's plan, Jesus has wept over you and said: "If only you had known the path to peace this day; but you have completely lost it from view!" (Lk 19:41-42) You too should weep bitterly.

However, we don't have to be ignorant of God's plan, for Jesus "has won the right by His victory" to open God's scroll and reveal the meaning of life (Rv 5:5). "In times past, God spoke in fragmentary and varied ways to our fathers through the prophets; in this, the final age, He has spoken to us through His Son" (Heb 1:1-2). Jesus is the eternal Word made flesh (Jn 1:14). He is the only Way to know the Truth of the meaning of Life (Jn 14:6). Now we know what life is about because we know Jesus, Who is the Life (Jn 14:6; 11:25).

Listen to Jesus in His body, the Church. Listen to the Church in her teachings, especially in her Bible. Know, rejoice in, and live God's plan, "a plan which (includes) us" (Heb 11:40). "You are not in the dark" (1 Thes 5:4). "No, all of you are children of light and of the day" (1 Thes 5:5). "Blest are your eyes because they see" (Mt 13:16).

 
Prayer: Father, make me a light to the "culture of death" in this world in darkness.
Promise: "You made of them a kingdom, and priests to serve our God, and they shall reign on the earth." —Rv 5:10
Praise: "Worthy are You to receive the scroll and break open its seals, for You were slain. With Your blood You purchased for God men of every race and tongue, of every people and nation" (Rv 5:9). Alleluia!
