When Jesus boldly claims to be God Himself and Son of the Father, you can imagine the skepticism of the people around him. They might have been thinking: (1) He’s insane, (2) He’s a liar, or (3) He’s exactly who He claims to be.
Jesus was more than a prophet. He was sent with the greatest responsibility: saving the world. Who alone could possibly take that on? A mere human? Hardly. It required the power and authority of the Creator himself who was intent on binding up the world’s wounds and setting it right.
Focus on family prayer with Jesus today. When you pray and invite Him into your home, you are inviting the living God, Jesus, his Mother Mary and all the saints. Actively think about welcoming them into your home this day and every day.
May God and His Beloved Son continue to bless you and your family.
