Friday of the Fourth Week of Lent

Acts 4:10-12: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth... Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved..
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, through Jesus our savior and redeemer we thank and praise you. Your love has given the sacrifice for our sin and your power has given us the assurance of our resurrection from the dead. Your Son's willingness to spend a lifetime with us has given us a Great High Priest who intercedes with empathy for our struggles. His example lets us know of your great love. Thank you, O God! Thank you for being so gracious and giving us such a wonderful Savior. Amen.

Scripture: John 7:1-2, 10, 25-30
1After this Jesus went about in Galilee; he would not go about in Judea, because the Jews sought to kill him. 2Now the Jews' feast of Tabernacles was at hand. 10But after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not publicly but in private. 25Some of the people of Jerusalem therefore said, "Is not this the man whom they seek to kill? 26And here he is, speaking openly, and they say nothing to him! Can it be that the authorities really know that this is the Christ? 27Yet we know where this man comes from; and when the Christ appears, no one will know where he comes from." 28So Jesus proclaimed, as he taught in the temple, "You know me, and you know where I come from? But I have not come of my own accord; he who sent me is true, and him you do not know. 29I know him, for I come from him, and he sent me." 30So they sought to arrest him; but no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come.
Meditation on Today's Scripture:
No one can be uninterested with Jesus for long. What he said and did - his signs and wonders - he performed in the name of God. Jesus not only declared to be the Messiah, God’s Anointed One. He claimed to be in a unique association with God and to know him as no one else did. To the Jews this was utter blasphemy. The religious authorities did all they could to put a stop to Jesus since they could not accept his claims and the demands he made. We cannot be unconcerned to the claims which Jesus makes on us. We are either for him or beside him. There is no middle ground. We can try to shape Jesus to our own ideas and preferences or we can allow his word to free us from our own lack of knowledge, stubborn pride, and deception. Do we accept all that Jesus has said and done for you with faith and respect or with disbelief and contempt? The consequences are huge, both in this life and in eternity. Heavenly Father, who are the light of the minds that know you, the joy of the hearts that love you, and the power of the wills that serve you; grant us so to know you, that we may truly love you, and so to love you that we may fully serve you, whom to serve is perfect freedom, in Infant Jesus Christ our Lord.
