My reflection today comes from our Mercy Prayer Book:
The reading is from Romans 8:14-17￼￼
“ All who are led by the Spirit of God are children of God. For you did not receive a spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received a spirit of adoption. When we cry,”Abba! Father! “It is that very Spirit bearing witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs, heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ – if, in fact, we suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.￼￼”
Today in this reading, Jesus challenges us to reflect on our belief of being a child of God.
It means in good times and in bad times we are called to believe that God is faithful even during these very scary times.
We suffer with him so that we may also be glorified with him.
