Today’s Consuming Fire Meditation- – A Daily Dose of the Flame of Love Diary Served Up with Today’s Scriptures
Feast of Saint Matthew, Apostle
You Came For Me!
“You know how pleased I am when you prostrate before Me and say that you are sorry for your sins as no sinner has ever been sorry and that you want to love Me more than all converted sinners.” (Jesus) (April 8, 1962)
Today’s Readings: Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” (Matthew 9)
Prayer Meditation- Lord, You remind us so vividly that You came not for the righteous but for sinners- to set us free and heal us and free us so that we can live the abundant life You have meant for us to live. (John 10). This is really good news because that means You came for me and for all of us because we are all sinners and all broken and only You can fix us. Lord help us to know that Your Gaze is always upon us- You see us just as we are and You look at us with such love and ask us to follow You. Lord help us not to miss Your invitation today and every day!
