Sts. Joseph of Arimathea and Nicodemus
"What is there about his word?"
Think of the politician or celebrity you find most engaging, multiply that times ten, and you might have an inkling of what it was like to be in the presence of Jesus. He is the ultimate authority and he had no patience for demons. His very commands were obeyed by them. Therefore, how much more should I pay attention to Christ's words?
One more thing: I hope some day my kids will think of me as "kind and merciful, slow to anger and of great kindness." If I speak to them with words taught by the spirit and not with human wisdom, then perhaps they will catch a glimpse of Christ in me.
Prayer: Lord Jesus, I bow before your greatness and authority. Help me to desire to be immersed in your Word daily and to live by it's teachings. In your precious name I pray, Amen. Sts. Joseph and Nicodemus, pray for me.
