•So they left
, rejoicing that they had been found worthy to suffer dishonor for the sake of the name. (Acts 5:41)
•You changed my mourning into dancing. (Psalm 30:12)
to the Lamb be blessing and honor, glory and might
Cast the net over the right side of the boat and you will find something. (John 21:6)
•What are disciples called to do?
•What can a disciple expect to receive?
•What do you hope to find from the resurrected Jesus?
•Where do you look for Jesus?
What will we be then and what will remain of us, whose life was nothing but the business of the day, idle talk and vain pretense? What will be the outcome of our life when at the last judgment the true essence of our hollow life and the many days and long years that have remained empty, will be relentlessly revealed? Will anything remain beyond those moments in which the grace of love or an honest prayer to God shyly found a corner of our life otherwise filled with ephemeral rubbish.
It is of extreme importance to escape from this empty routine. Through the humdrum of our daily life we must find our way to Him who alone is the Lord. Our everyday life must become a hymn of praise, indeed it must become in itself a prayer.
God must be sought and found in the things of the world. By regarding our daily duties as something performed for the honor and glory of God, we can convert what was hitherto soul-killing monotony, to the living worship of God in all our actions.1
