Wednesday of the Fifth Week of Easter
Acts 15:1-6 | Ps. 122:1-5 | John 15:1-8
The Gospel brings us back to the idea of being branches on the vine of Christ. Jesus assures us that we do need to be pruned in order to be brought closer to Him. The pruning has to do with listening to God’s word and allowing ourselves to be changed by that Word. We may not know exactly what we need to change; but, through careful attentive listening to the Word of God, we will come to know and receive the grace to change.
Today, allow Christ full reign over your life. Invite Him to call you to new life and heal you. Be open. Allow yourself to be surprised. Respond with all your being. Go out to others and bring that Good News to them.
