TRUE HOLINESSS IS DOING GODíS WILL by Fr. Linh

THE BAPTISM OF THE LORD – YEAR C

Listen to the Reflection here!

Second Reading: Titus 2:11-14; 3:4-7

Jesus Christ saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit.

 

Beloved: The grace of God has appeared, saving all and training us to reject godless ways and worldly desires and to live temperately, justly, and devoutly in this age, as we await the blessed hope, the appearance of the glory of our great God and savior Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to deliver us from all lawlessness and to cleanse for himself a people as his own, eager to do what is good.

 

When the kindness and generous love of God our savior appeared, not because of any righteous deeds we had done but because of his mercy, He saved us through the bath of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, whom he richly poured out on us through Jesus Christ our savior, so that we might be justified by his grace and become heirs in hope of eternal life.

 

Questions for Reflection

 

1.      What are the reasons for God’s strict laws for holiness?

 

2.      Why isn’t it possible for sin to mix with holiness?

 

3.      How can people understand the holiness of God if they do not see it in our lives?
