How Do You Receive The Word of God?
While preparing for morning Mass for Tuesday January 14, 2014 and reviewing the readings for Mass, the Gospel Acclamation struck me as a great meditation for this week. Having just finished the Christmas season and celebrating the Word of God becoming flesh and what a unbelievable gift of Love the Father has given us through the Incarnation of His Word, this particular acclamation kind of stopped me in my tracks. It seems rather important that each of us take the time to pause, pray and reflect upon just how do we receive the Word of God and having received it, how do we then respond in our lives? The acclamation is taken from 1 Thessalonians 2:13 and reads; "Receive the Word of God, not as the word of men, but as it truly is, the Word of God."
