ALL DONE

 
" 'My friend,' he said, 'how is it you came in here not properly dressed?' The man had nothing to say." —Matthew 22:12
 

Jesus will sprinkle clean water on us to give us new life in Him and cleanse us from all our impurities (Ez 36:25). He will give us a new heart and a new spirit (Ez 36:26) and will even put His Spirit within us (Ez 36:27). Furthermore, He will give us robes of righteousness (see 2 Cor 5:3) and make us holy as He is holy (1 Pt 1:16).

If we don't have victory on earth and eternal life in heaven, it will not be Jesus' fault. Out of love for us, He became man, died on the cross, rose from the dead, and poured out the Spirit. He remains with us in the Eucharist, and even dwells within us in unheard-of intimacy (Jn 6:56; 17:23). What more could He do?

We only need to let it be done to us according to God's will (Lk 1:38). Jesus has done all the work. Our part is to believe in Him and thereby accept His saving grace. We have no excuse not to come to the heavenly banquet, no excuse for going to hell. Accept Jesus' finished work. Accept Jesus as Savior, Lord, and God.

 
Prayer: Jesus, I choose to live for You and not for myself, to do Your will and not mine.
Promise: "You shall be My people, and I will be your God." —Ez 36:28
Praise: Pope St. Pius X's greatest accomplishment was the promotion of the Eucharist.
