Cana 90 – Sixth Week of Easter Friday
Keep the Word of the Word
“Jesus answered and said to him, “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him.”
~ John 14:23
This weekend we will celebrate Jesus’ Ascension into Heaven. Jesus is trying to set his Disciples & us up here. It’s like parents getting ready to leave for an extended trip with their kids at home.
He has given us everything we need to succeed by giving us Himself, through scripture & the Sacraments.
Where do we need to grow in keeping the Word of Jesus close to our hearts? Individually, as a couple, as a family?
Some ideas to put this into practice:
- Partake in a Sacrament. Weekly, or daily Eucharist (Mass) this week. Reconciliation. Attend an Ordination (tis the season).
- Read scripture daily this week. Specifically the Gospels. If this is not something you have done frequently in your life many scholars recommended starting with the Gospel of Matthew.
- Talk as a family/couple about how you will continue to live out the desires God has placed on your heart.
- Continue to define your family mission/ministry. Where is God calling you to change the world?
