Sermons by Fr. Ken Lao, CC (Page 2)
What if Jesus was not born? What if we didn’t receive this greatest gift? God loves us so much that he gave us his only Son. He is the greatest gift to us. What is our response? Cherish this gift. Receive this gift and grow in relationship with him. Deepen your faith in him and share the gift with others.
Do we allow Jesus to reign in our lives?
Detach yourselves from your self-will. It will cost a lot. Whenever we offer up our self-will, we will be crucified.
“What do you want me to do for you?”
Many of us have attachments. Here are 3 keys to detachment. Willingness is the key – “Not ready Lord, but willing.” (Fr. Bob Bedard, CC) Grow in intimacy with the Lord – Intimacy with the Lord will help us with our detachments. Strive for progress, not perfection – We will not be fully detached from the things of this world during this life. When we die we will be fully detached.
God is speaking to us all the time. The signal is strong and clear. Sometimes, when we turn the radio on all we hear is static or a bunch of stations combined together and we can’t hear. The Lord is always speaking. The signal is strong and clear. We need to tune in. We need to tune in to the right radio frequency. Tune out all other signals that will leads us to chaos and confusion.
We need to know Jesus personally before we can share that with others. We can’t give what we don’t have. Our one purpose in life is to share Jesus!
Here are three things that we can do to improve in our commitment to serve the Lord.
We need spiritual strength to make this journey. Whatever trials, sufferings, and pain we endure during this life will be worth it when we reach the mountain top. Whatever we will see in Heaven is beyond our comprehension.
Do we believe that Jesus can satisfy our hunger and thirst?
