I am the Son of God

Hebrews 12:2: Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, Everyday morning we begin with praises and thanks Lord, without your grace and the gift of your salvation, we could not approach you with confidence. Thank you for sending Jesus! Thank you for his life, his death, his resurrection, his exaltation and his intercession. That gave us life. We pledge this day to keep our eyes on him! Through his holy name we pray. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 10:31-42)
Jesus made two claims in his reply: He was sanctified by the Father to a special task and he was sent into the world to perform his Father's mission. Jesus challenged his enemies to accept his works if they could not believe his words. One can argue by words, but deeds are beyond dispute. Jesus is the ideal teacher in that he does not base his claims on what he speaks but on what he does. The word of God is existence and power to those who believe. Jesus shows us the way to walk the path of truth and sanctity. And he anoints us through his power to live the gospel with joy and to live his witnesses in the world. Are you an active person of God's word, or a forgetful hearer only?

Is your life sanctified to God? The scriptural understanding of sanctification is to make holy for God – to be given over because a free-will offering and sacrifice for God. Jesus completed himself a sin-offering for us, to set free us from condemnation and slavery to sin. He spoke of his Father consecrating him for this assignment of salvation. Why were the religious leaders so distress with Jesus that they wanted to kill him? They charged him with blasphemy since he claimed to be the Son of God. Do we believe He is Son of God?
