HISTORY LESSON

 
"So Paul arose, motioned to them for silence and began." —Acts 13:16
 

Paul recalled to the Jews of Antioch in Pisidia their spiritual history. He mentioned the Exodus, wandering in the desert, entry into the promised land, and special people like Samuel, Saul, David, and John the Baptizer.

Ask the Spirit to remind you (Jn 14:26) of the events, places, and people that the Lord used in leading you to Himself. This history lesson will help you see God's plan for your life, fill you with thanksgiving, and give you confidence that He didn't bring you this far to leave you.

In fact, "He Who has begun the good work in you will carry it through to completion, right up to the day of Christ Jesus" (Phil 1:6). You'll feel like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. Your heart will burn and you'll recognize Jesus in new ways (Lk 24:31-32). Jesus will become real and alive for you. It will be as if He personally appeared to you in His risen glory. You will have Easter and be compelled to witness that Jesus is alive.

Let the Spirit roll away the stone. Then come out of the tomb into the light and life of the risen Christ.

 
Prayer: Father, I will live no longer for myself but for Jesus (2 Cor 5:15). Help me to love Jesus in the Mass ever more deeply.
Promise: "Through all generations my mouth shall proclaim Your faithfulness." —Ps 89:2
Praise: Charlotte was blind for eight years. Jesus healed her.
