Receiving The Word of God

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

Wednesday of the Twenty First Week of Ordinary Time

Receiving The Word of God

Jesus: “My daughter, what I am about to say to you is not just for you. Share it with all My beloved children. Assimilate the essence of My words with the thoughts from your heart. You must shake lukewarm souls out of the indifference which drowns them. First, make them realize that they must live in intimate union with Me; especially those who despite receiving Me frequently in their souls avoid getting closer to Me. My effort to take them to a deeper spiritual level is wasted if they turn their backs on Me and abandon Me. (Jesus) (April 17, 1962)

Today’s Readings: And for this reason we too give thanks to God unceasingly,
that, in receiving the word of God from hearing us,
you received it not as the word of men, but as it truly is, the word of God,
which is now at work in you who believe. (1 Thessalonians 2)

Prayer Meditation- Lord we praise You, thank You and glorify You because we can receive You daily in Your Word and in The Eucharist if we so desire. We receive Your Word, not just as the words of men long ago but as truly Your Word to us every day. Lord, may we always seek that intimate union with You in prayer and in the Sacraments, may we never be indifferent or lukewarm! Lord take us into the deep- like little drops of water in the Ocean of Your Mercy and Grace so that we would be transformed into Your image and likeness in Your Most Holy and Divine Will!
