No matter who you are, what you’ve done, or what others say about you, you are priceless in God’s eyes - Daily Bible Reflections October 23,2015


WHO IS THE
STRONGEST ?
 
I see in my members another principle at war with the law of my mind... – Romans 7:23
 
       On his deathbed, surrounded by his greatest generals and kings, Alexander the Great was asked, “To whom do you give your kingdom?” The dying monarch replied, “To the strongest among you,” and promptly expired.
       We all face the same question every day. We are often made to choose: body or soul, sentiment or commitment, discipline or disregard. As St. Paul put it, “I see in my members another law at war with the law of my mind.”
       But how do you build up that strength so that you always make the right decision? St. Paul answers it plainly: “God through Christ.” Did you notice that he didn’t say anything about growing in strength? Because becoming strong isn’t just asking for strength. More than that, it is building a relationship.
       As we build that relationship with God by spending time with Him, three things happen. One, we grow in grace. Two, we learn His ways, and three, we love Him more. Ultimately, when life asks us to choose, our response will reflect the depth of our relationship with Jesus. Rod Velez (rod.velez@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: No matter who you are, what you’ve done, or what others say about you, you are priceless in God’s eyes. He wants to strengthen His relationship with you if you would only let Him.
 
More than the need to be strong, what I desire most is to have a deeper and more meaningful relationship with You, Lord. Amen.
 
St. John of Capistrano, priest, pray for us.
