Walk and sin no more

Romans 6:23: The wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, Thank you for loving us when no one else could or would. Thank you for sacrificing the most precious gift of heaven so we could join you there. Of all the gifts we've ever received, yours is the best. We offer this praise in the name of one whose gift has given us life! Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 5:1-16)
The signs and miracles which Jesus executed manifest the power and existence of God’s kingdom and they show the love and mercy God has for his people. In the pool at Bethzatha we observe an individual’s helplessness conquer by God’s mercy and power. On this juncture Jesus singles out an not curable invalid, helpless and desperate for almost forty years. He rouses hope when he puts a probing question to the man, “Do you really want to be cured? And he then orders him to “get up and walk!” God wants to liberated us from the power of sin and make us entire. But he will not force our hand opposite our will. The first necessary step towards growth and healing is the desire for change. If we are content to stay as we are, then no amount of persuade will change us. The Lord manifest his power and saving grace towards those who wish transformation of life in Christ. The Lord move toward each of us with the same inquisitive question: “Do you really want to be altered, to be set free from the power of sin, and to be changed in my holiness?” Do you desire to grow in holiness and be like Christ? Ezekiel prophesies that a “river of life” will pour from God’s throne in the Temple. This water will convert everything it touches, bringing life, medicinal, and restoration. Jesus offers himself as the foundation of this living water which he will pour out ahead his disciples in the present of the Holy Spirit.
(Sunday Homilies - Sermon by Fr Kuriakose)
