And this is love, that we walk according to His commandments.  – 1 Jn 5:3

Reflection. Christ declared, “No one comes to the Father except through me” (Jn 14:6).  The human heart longs for love.  Without love, there is no joy.  If you really love, you will be willing to make sacrifices.  Joy and surrender go hand in hand.

Prayer. I love You, my Lord, and my God.  Teach me to love You more and more, that my joy may be full.
