Lifted Up

Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures

Tuesday of the Fifth Week of Lent

Lifted Up

At that same instant, He lifted up my soul from the earth while the sound of His words kept ringing in me. He added: Jesus: “It is only the soul purified of its sins that I raise to Me in this way.” (Elizabeth/Jesus) (January 13, 1966)

Today’s Readings: So, Jesus said to them,
“When you lift up the Son of Man,
then you will realize that I AM,
and that I do nothing on my own,
but I say only what the Father taught me.
The one who sent me is with me.
He has not left me alone,
because I always do what is pleasing to him.” (John 8)

Prayer Meditation- Lord, like the first reading today in Numbers, we feel that we are perishing from the snakes that bite us. Even if  we are not in physical danger, we all will perish in our sins without repentance. Lord, You are high and lifted up- the Son of Man high on the Cross that takes away the sins of the world. Help us Lord Jesus to keep our eyes above the storm around us and on You, clearly fixed on You, and lead us to everlasting life!
