Being A Witness of Truth

He that cometh from above, is above all. He that is of the earth, of the earth he is, and of the earth he speaketh. He that cometh from heaven, is above all. And what he hath seen and heard, that he testifieth: and no man receiveth his testimony. He that hath received his testimony, hath set to his seal that God is true. For he whom God hath sent, speaketh the words of God: for God doth not give the Spirit by measure. The Father loveth the Son: and he hath given all things into his hand. He that believeth in the Son, hath life everlasting; but he that believeth not the Son, shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.
John 3:31-36 (Douay-Rheims Bible)

Prayer Reflection

Dear Father we have so much to be thankful for in our lives. One of them is you most of all. Without you in our life we wouldn't be able to witness to the very many things you do for us. But one of the biggest beliefs is about you sending us your son. How in our daily lives Jesus touches each of us personally. Half of the time we are silent about how he touches us. I am reminded about the uniqueness of our Judicial system in this regard. If anyone has ever seen a trial in our Courts, or watched a mock one on TV would know that these courts are all about Truth to the highest degree of the Law. When swearing in they give a solemn oath to tell the truth, to give testimony and witness. Today's Gospel reading is telling us the same that if we are from above then we should be witnessing to this fact with truth and not keeping it hidden. Except we tend to hide who we are rather than live the truth that we are from Above.
