Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life - Ġesù Hu t-Triq, il-Verità, u l-Ħajja

JESUS IS THE WAY, THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE -  

Who is that father who is ready to send his only

son to die to save others ? Only God knows.  

BUT if you were a god and you had all the

power in your hands...would you still send your

only son ? - God still did...starting by waiting for

the consent of a human woman - Mary...to be

born within a poor family nucleus - a refugee

couple - man and a woman; having emotions 

like any person (but never giving in to sin) ---

 being cared for; experiencing joy, laughter,

temptation, hard manual work, thirst, hunger,

sweat. He was moved with compassion for

others, he cried; he endured physical

pain...even teething and losing his baby

teeth...but Jesus also experienced psychological

suffering - he was bullied, harassed, ridiculed,

hated; endured sadness, loneliness,

abandonment, disappointment, failure, torture;

he was spitted at, rejected, deceitfully accused,

crucified, killed, even experienced the coldness

of a tomb...and he is the Son of God - He could

have escaped any kind of death just like other

times (Luke 4:14-30) - AND YET, HE PAID BACK

WITH LOVE AND COMPASSION, TEACHING AND

REVEALING THE DECEIT OF THE DEVIL, EVEN

BY BOWING DOWN TO HIS OWN

HUMAN DEATH...

Philippians 2:6-8

6 Who, being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;


7 rather, he made himself nothing
by taking the very nature of a servant,
being made in human likeness.


8 And being found in appearance as a man,
he humbled himself
by becoming obedient to death—
even death on a cross!


 - He is an obedient and loyal Son of God - He is

God; He conquered death, He is with us, He is

in us especially every time we receive Holy

Communion...HE IS THE EVER LOVING,

HUMBLE PERSON WHO LOVES YOU...IN AN

AUTHENTIC WAY...WITH ALL YOUR

WEAKNESSES...SO THAT YOUR CHANGE IN HIM

WILL REFLECT HIS GLORY AND

UNCONDITIONAL LOVE TO OTHERS - GLORY BE

TO GOD THE FATHER AND TO THE SON AND TO

THE HOLY SPIRIT - THE HOLY TRINITY AMEN !!!
