Homilies/Reflections

I KNOW GOD
By Fr. John Oscar Obi

The greatest truth of the Christian Faith is that we can know the living God.  The knowledge that we have of God is not limited by knowing something about Him but we can know Him personally. Christianity is different from Judaism and other world religions because we can have the knowledge of God as Father.  The Lord makes it possible for each of us to personally know God as our Father. Hence to see Jesus is to see what God is like. In Jesus we see the perfect love of God; a God who cares intensely and who yearns over men and women, loving them to the point of laying down his life for them upon the cross. Jesus is the revelation of God, a God who loves us completely, unconditionally and perfectly. We demonstrate our believe and our knowledge of God as our Father when we allow Jesus to transform us into instruments of his love to all as God‘s children.

 

Prayer: Lord Jesus may I love my brothers and sisters as the Father loves us in you.
