Readings for the day:
Psalm 98:1, 7-9
At some point in our lives, we are gonna ask ourselves this one question. Which is “What do we want out of life”? What are we looking for? Is this the best thing for me? All this questions is meant to assure us that we are on the right course or rather check whether we are on it.
In the gospel reading of today, when John the baptist directed the disciples to Jesus Christ, At this very point in their lives, they were posed with this question and it was asked by our Lord himself. The big question he asked his disciples was “what were they looking for?”. That same question he pose to us this day, if asked what would be your answer. What really are we looking for in Jesus: is it wealth, good health, job opportunities or fame.
In all, one thing is most important. In our search for christ, we should see a saving Lord, in whom we can find a home with him. That’s the most important thing because earthly goods would fade away. Its just a matter of time, its only what we have build in Christ that would remain the same.
As we rest in the Loving arms of Christ, may our lives radiate his very breath through Christ our Lord, amen.
