Reaction to Jesus' words

Psalm 62:7-8: For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all men - the testimony given in its proper time.
  Let us Pray ...
Heavenly Father, you are our God, and we praise you for making access to you so freely available. We know that if left to our own power, we would have no strength or righteousness with which to approach you. Yet in your grace, you not only provided a ransom for our sin, but you also provided a mediator for our approach to you. Jesus, we thank you as well, for paying the price and staying at the Father's side to intercede and speak for us! We make this prayer through Infant Jesus. Amen.

  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (John 7:40-53)
Today’s Gospel asks a question to everyone that "who is Jesus for us"? And are you ready to give him our full loyalty? No one could be uninterested for long while confronted with Jesus and his message. Its was reason a division among many in Israel. a number of believed he was a prophet, some said Messiah, and some thought he was neither. The reaction of the officers was bewildered astonishment. They went to arrest him and came back empty-handed because they by no means heard no one spoke as he did. The reaction of Nicodemus was nervous. His heart told him to protect Jesus, but his head told him not to take the danger. There will frequently come a time while we have to take a decision for Christ and for the gospel. To stand for Jesus might provoke mockery or unpopularity. It may even involve hardship, sacrifice, and pain. Are we ready to stand for Jesus and to show Him honor and faithfulness whatever it may cost us?
(Sunday Homilies - Sermon by Fr Kuriakose)
