My Father is working still, and I am working

1 John 1:9: If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, we thank you and praise you for loving us, please forgive us today for our lack of passion to love and forgive others in the way you have so graciously forgiven us. Create in us a heart like your own: faithful, forgiving, and gracious. In the precious name of Infant Jesus we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 5:17-30)
Jesus shows the Father's mercy by healing and restoring people, even on the Sabbath day of relax. When the religious leaders accused that Jesus was making himself equivalent with God, Jesus replied that he was not acting separately of God because his relationship is a close individual Father-Son relationship. He and the Father are united in heart, mind, and determination. The mind of Jesus is the mind of God and that is what for, and the words of Jesus are the words of God and it must be. The religious authorities blamed Jesus as a Sabbath-breaker and a blasphemer. They wanted to kill Jesus because he asserted equality with God – something they thought no earthly could say without blaspheming. Small did they understand that Jesus was both human and heavenly – the eternal Son with the Father and the human son, conceived by the Holy Spirit in the womb of Mary. Jesus answers their charge of breaking the Sabbath law by signifying God's purpose for creation and salvation – to save and restore life. God's love and mercy never ceases for an instant.

Jesus make a condition that to accept him is life – a life of plentiful peace and joy with God. But if we refuse him, then we freely choose for death – a never-ending separation with an all-loving and compassionate God. Do you want the rich life which Jesus offers? Believe in him, the living Word of God, who became a man for our sake and our deliverance, and reject anything is false and contrary to the gospel – the good news he came to give each of us. If we wish to understand how God handles with sin and how he responds to our sinful state, then we have to look to Jesus. Jesus took our sins upon him and nailed them to the cross. He, who is equal in dignity and build with the Father, became a servant for our sake to set free us from slavery to sin. He has the power to forgive us and to reinstate our relationship with God since he paid the price for our sins.
(Sunday Homilies - Sermon by Fr Kuriakose)
