Heavenly Father, thank you for loving us and saving us. We really want to mature in your grace. Bless us today as we seek to pattern holy habits and fill myself spiritually with the things that will help us grow. But Holy God, we know that true growth comes only from you, so we ask you to reinforce us by your Spirit as we follow your character. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: Matthew 9:27-31
In Jesus we see the fullness of God's mercy and the power of his kingdom – power to save from death and obliteration, to forgive sins and lift the burden of fault, and to heal ill-health and release the browbeaten. Jesus never refused to bring God's mercy to those who sincerely required it. How can we seek and get God's mercy? How can we cultivate faith? Faith is a gift freely given by God to help us know God for myself, to understand his truth, and to live in the power of his love. For faith to be effectual it must be linked with trust and compliance – an active submission to God and a readiness to do whatever he commands. God gives mercy to the humble in heart – to those who know their need for God and for his pardon and healing power. Compassion is something more than mercy, or sincere sorrow at another's disaster. Compassion identify with the sufferer. But mercy goes further; it removes anguish. A merciful person shares in another's bad luck and suffering as if it were their own. When two blind men come near Jesus, he queried their sincerity. God wants to change and change our lives to set us free to live as his sons and daughters and citizens of his kingdom. Faith is key to this alteration. "Do we believe that we are able to do this?" Jesus put them to the test, not to rejection them, but to strengthen their faith and trust in God's mercy. He touched their eyes, both to recognize with their suffering and to awaken faith in them. Their faith grew as they responded to his word with confident hope. Jesus restored their sight – both physically and spiritually to the reality of God's kingdom. Faith opens the way for us to see the power of God’s kingdom and to experience his healing presence in our lives.
