John 5, 31-47

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 5,31-47

Jesus said to the Jews: “If I testify on my own behalf, my testimony is not true.
But there is another who testifies on my behalf, and I know that the testimony he gives on my behalf is true.
You sent emissaries to John, and he testified to the truth.
I do not accept testimony from a human being, but I say this so that you may be saved.
He was a burning and shining lamp, and for a while you were content to rejoice in his light.
But I have testimony greater than John’s. The works that the Father gave me to accomplish, these works that I perform testify on my behalf that the Father has sent me.”
Moreover, the Father who sent me has testified on my behalf. But you have never heard his voice nor seen his form,
and you do not have his word remaining in you, because you do not believe in the one whom he has sent.
You search the scriptures, because you think you have eternal life through them; even they testify on my behalf.
But you do not want to come to me to have life.
I do not accept human praise;
moreover, I know that you do not have the love of God in you.
I came in the name of my Father, but you do not accept me; yet if another comes in his own name, you will accept him.
How can you believe, when you accept praise from one another and do not seek the praise that comes from the only God?
Do not think that I will accuse you before the Father: the one who will accuse you is Moses, in whom you have placed your hope.
For if you had believed Moses, you would have believed me, because he wrote about me.
But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?”

Our testimony liberates us

1) Testimony: This is expressing what you have lived. Jesus testifies the supernatural. The apostles testify the experience lived with Jesus. The saints testify their intimate encounter with God. What are you a witness of?

2) The word remains: Our Catholic faith does not have an expiration date. You belong to Christ always and you must remember that we are not Christians like we were actors, only when you have a play you show what you are. We are Christians 24 hours a day, every day wherever we are. We are Christian when we pray a rosary or when we go eat with friends. We must not go overboard either by being fanatical or fake, just lead a normal simple life.

3) Believe: your life can change drastically with a little faith. Life is hard and tough, but faith makes it easier and gives you strength. Do not be afraid to seek faith. Please believe, because believing gives you life.

God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. And remember, Heaven is our goal.
