In Jesus Christ, my Soul rejoice!

The Gospel from Saint John today ( John 1: 6-8;19-28 ) brings us back to Saint John the Baptist. John the Baptist was a central focus of the Gospel last Sunday, and once again is here for us to consider. We should note that John the Baptist is not at all concerned about being considered as great or important. His one concern ( this is a follower’s duty ) is to POINT TO JESUS CHRIST: THE ONE WHO IS TO COME ( memorial at Christmas on the 25th December 2017 ), WHOSE SANDAL STRAP HE IS UNWORTHY TO UNTIE.

Saint John the Baptist is a Saint ( the right & aspiration of all Christian ) of ” joy ” ; He points always to Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world – Our Father. We also can become ” people of joy ” when our lives point to Jesus  our Lord ( this is aim of this Blog ). We don’t have to be perfect, but we do have to KEEP POINTING TO THE LORD, just as John the Baptist did –

The more we decrease, the more the Lord may increase.

It is a challenge, a sole matter of believing for us, to live in such a way that we are always WITNESS TO THE PRESENCE OF GOD AND GOD’S LOVE – ” In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father ” : Matthew 5: 16

From January 9th 2017, if you have been blessed by Jesus Christ’s love, through the medium of my ” Hobby “. Show your appreciation now by sharing what you depend on with the ” needy “, by rejoicing always and delighting in your faith; be unceasing and persistent in prayer; in every situation; be thankful and continually give thanks to God, for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus…”
