4th Sunday of Easter, Sunday 12th May 2019
It was Samuel who responded to the voice of God as he said ‘Speak Lord for your servant is listening’. (Samuel 3:7-11).
Jesus Christ the Good Shepherd is speaking to us again today, as He does always.
We all have been called to listen to the voice of God as in the case of Samuel.
Jesus Christ trusted in our ability to listen to His voice as He said, ‘the sheep that belongs to me listen to my voice’.
Every day God speaks to us through the Holy Spirit living in us.
God also speaks to us through our friends, family members and even people we not know. He also speaks to us through the events of life both good and bad. Most importantly God speaks to us through His word in the Holy Bible.
In His great love for us Jesus Christ is inviting us to listen to Him, Our Good Shepherd.
Not only that He know us, He is our healer, our protector, our best friend who has sacrificed His life for our sake.
May God give us all the grace we need to be good listeners to each other and more importantly to the word of God.
Jesus Christ is the good shepherd who can to give us life to the full. (John 10:10)
May your life be filled with more Divine grace in this new week.
