Lord, I will Follow You.

TUESDAY: Seventh Week of Easter

Acts 20:17-27/Ps.67:10-11,20-21/Jn.17:1-11

Lord, I will Follow You.

There is no other way to live a full Christian life than to imitate Christ in his humility, obedience, apostolic zeal, and selflessness. Christ is the model of the fullness of life he offered us (Jn.10:10). If we imitate Christ, God will reward us in the same order, which he did with Christ (Phil.2:5-11). Fidelity to the divine word, complete commitment to God's will - regardless of persecution and suffering, or loss of life will win us the grown of salvation (Rom.8:28-39).

Jesus and Paul respectively expressed the same level of contentment and gratitude to the Father. They looked forward to the end of their mission on earth as moments of glory. They learned perfection through suffering and witnessing for God (Heb.2:10; 5:10). Their apostolic challenge to us: imitate their virtues, values, and courage - become living expressions of the Beatitude.

O God, I place all my trust in you and your Son. Do not let me falter along the way.
