Lent 29.1: LIKE FATHER, LIKE SON

John 5:17-30

You : Hi Jesus, it’s me.

Jesus : Hello, how nice to see you again! You seem a bit down…

You : Well, I have a problem, Lord.

Jesus : Yes I know but maybe you’d like to tell me…

You : Well, it’s like this. There’s so many things I want to do for You but I just don’t know what to do or where to start. I read today that You are always working and so is theFather. How did you know what to do?

Jesus : Well, as the Son I can do nothing by Myself, I only do what I see my Father doing. Because He loves me, He shows me what He does.

You : I know You love me but I still don’t know what I should be doing…. Is it ever possible to know?

Jesus : Absolutely! Remember the time when as a child you used to follow what your mother did?

You : Yes, yes… it’s coming back to me now. I,…I used to sit with her and do the same things she did! If she did sewing, I would sew too. If she did some gardening, I’ll try my hand at gardening too! It was so much fun!

Jesus : How did your mother feel when you followed her in her work?

You : It certainly brought a smile to her face. Whenever I did a mistake, she’d show me the right way of doing it.

Jesus : Well, there you have it. Spend more time with me and I will show You what’s on My heart. And when you do them, you’ll certainly bring a smile to My Father’s face.

You : I think I’ve got it… Thank You Lord, I love you.

Jesus : I love you too, My precious one!

Reflection:
“Lord, bring me close to You till the noise of this world fades and Your heart beat can be heard”
