Even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.

John 10:31-42

April 15, 2011 Bible Reading and Gospel

In today’s Gospel reading, Jesus teaches us that our faith is based not only on what God has promised, but also on what he has done. Christ points to his works as the basis for faith in him as the Son: “Even if you do not believe me, believe the works”. The greatest of all these works is his resurrection from the dead, which we will commemorate a few days from now. Works are always more powerful than words. Words may convince the mind, but works move the will to action – to decision.

Lord Jesus, help me strive to make my works match what I profess to believe. Teach me to live a life of a true follower of yours, a life that appreciates your saving grace, a life that will touch others and bring them also to the light and truth of your salvation. Amen.
