As followers of Christ we are made ambassadors of the work of Christ's spirit. When others encounter us as Christians, we signify Christ to them.
Those baptized in Christ are made members of his body. We are made sharers in his divine life, and brothers and sisters to one another.
As we continue our Lenten journey, today's words from the prophet Isaiah offer us hope. God wants good things for us.
Faith means being open to surprises by God. If we want deeper conversion for ourselves, should we not also look for transformation in others?
The word of God is the bringer of life and all that is good. Sadly, not everywhere the word of God lands brings forth good fruit.
Jesus faultlessly demonstrated the will of God, and is the true image of perfection for us. We have been consecrated to God's will in him.
Christ's throne is a cross and his victory is in service. The strength of the cross transforms the world. It turns everything upside down.
