The Father's witness

Philippians 1:29: For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for him.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, What a precious name you have given to your son Jesus, O Lord. We glorify His Name. May it be exalted in all the earth and throughout all the heavens, until every human being knows that he is truly Lord. In Infant Jesus name, and for his glory, we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 5:31-47)
Jesus declares that the scriptures themselves, including the first five books of Moses, point to him as the Savior, the promised Messiah. Jesus begins his resistance by citing John the Baptist as a witness, since John publicly pointed to Jesus as the Savior and had repeatedly borne spectator to him. Jesus also asserts that a greater witness to his uniqueness is the signs and miracles he performed. He cites his works, not to point to himself other than to point to the power of God working in and through him. He cites God the Father as his highest witness. The problem with the scribes and Pharisees was that they did not consider what Moses had written. They preferred the praise of their fellow humans and since they were so paying attention on themselves, they became blind sighted to God. They were so worried with their own position as authorities and interpreters of the rule that they became hardened and not capable to understand the word of God. Their arrogance made them deaf to God’s voice. Scripture tells us that God makes known him to the lowly, to those who trust not in themselves, but who faith God and listen to God's word with an eagerness to learn and to obey. The Lord Jesus makes known to us the mind and heart of God. Through the reward of the Holy Spirit he opens our ears so that we might hear his voice and he fills our hearts and minds by the love and facts of God.
(Sunday Homilies - Sermon by Fr Kuriakose)
