“Today’s story brought back that memory to my heart, and that is when I started to realize that I needed to learn to know God’s heart more. To lean more into my relationship with Jesus more than ever. That I needed to understand how important my union with God needs to be.”
“Forgiveness is always possible, because the focus of our forgiveness should primarily be on moving past the pain and resuming our life. It should be liberating and help bring healing for us, not the person who hurt us. We need to find a way to move on from our hurts, or we will always be bogged down by our anger and pain.”
“In the Gospel Jesus is describing how we are to grow in unity and truth and love. But we have to do that through relationships where we care for each other first and foremost. Where we help each other grow as disciples, learn how better to follow Jesus, and discover what God is calling us to.”
“There are three journeys or conversions that happen in someone’s life of discipleship with Jesus: the first conversion is to Jesus, the second is to His Church, and the third to His mission. When we take stock of where we are on that journey of conversion, we can discover the plan God has for our lives.”
Jesus asks, “And who do you say that I am?” and we say, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
What does this statement mean? What does it imply?
If you ask me, it’s saying that WE BECOME what WE BELIEVE. We become his disciples!
