Fourth Sunday of Easter

Dear OLA Parish Family,
 
Jesus made three promises to His followers. He promised them everlasting life. If they accept Him and follow Him, they will have the life of God in them. Jesus also promised them a life that would know no end. Death would not be the end but the beginning; they would know the glory of indestructible life. Jesus promised a life that was secure. Jesus said that nothing would snatch them out of His hand, not even sorrow and death, since He is everlasting life itself. Our lives are safe in His hands. The words that Jesus spoke upset many of the Jewish leaders. They did not understand how He could speak with the same authority that God spoke and claim to be equal with God. 
 
We are faced with the same choice. Either Jesus is who he claims to be – the Son of God and Savior of the world – or the world’s greatest deluder! We cannot be indifferent to His claim. For those who accept Jesus as the Son of God, he offers the peace and security of eternal life and joy with God. Jesus gives us the grace we need to answer His call. We must be ever attentive to His voice and submit fully to His wise rule for our lives. Draw near to the Good Shepherd and find peace and joy in His presence. 
 
Have a blessed day.
 
Yours in Christ,
Father Edward Domme
