"Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done wondrous deeds;"
What St. Paul tells us in today's first reading is cause for celebration! God our Father has redeemed us through the blood of Christ. We are his adopted sons and daughters!
One more thing: I admit, I sometimes take my salvation for granted. I forget what a wonderful thing God has done for me! I forget to bring the joy of my salvation to every part of my life. I can keep from inflicting further suffering for Christ when I embrace this joy and spread it to my children. I will try to sing joyfully to the Lord today in both my words and actions. I will let my children know the joy of the Lord through me!
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of salvation through your son Jesus Christ. Help me to embrace the joy of my salvation in all that I do, especially for my children. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen. St. Callistus, pray for me.
