Reverence and Mutual Love
A reading from the First Letter of St. Peter (1:17-25):
Now if you invoke as Father him who judges impartially according to each one’s works, conduct yourselves with reverence during the time of your sojourning, realizing that you were ransomed from your futile conduct, handed on by your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold but with the precious blood of Christ as of a spotless unblemished lamb. He was known before the foundation of the world but revealed in the final time for you, who through him believe in God who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope are in God.
Since you have purified yourselves by obedience to the truth for sincere mutual love, love one another intensely from a pure heart. You have been born anew, not from perishable but from imperishable seed, through the living and abiding word of God, for: “All flesh is like grass, and all its glory like the flower of the field; the grass withers, and the flower wilts; but the word of the Lord remains forever.” This is the word that has been proclaimed to you.
We had an even better day yesterday with a day of sunshine and a lot of snow melting everywhere. I thank the Lord for these nice days.
Below you will find the message of Our Lord, the Son of God, given to Father Melvin. Jesus spoke to him these words,
“Love your Heavenly Father My brother Melvin and all My brothers and sisters who accept Me as their brother. Is there any person that is greater that God the Father? Is there anybody that can do what the Father did and is still doing? Do you not owe the Father for everything? Did He not create you and does He not take care of you every day? Above all the Father loves you all, each and everyone of you. Should you not show Him your love and show reverence towards Him? If you believe in God, you will indeed say thank you every day for all that He does for you. When you are in need you will go to your Heavenly Father and ask Him for what you need. As you ask Me so at the very same moment you are asking the Father because the Father and I are one. Every human being on earth should be happy to know the Father and to love Him. If you do then follow what He tells you and avoid all sins. Do good every day to show Him your love. I bless you all.”
