First reading 1 John 4:11-18

As long as we love one another God’s love will be complete in us

My dear people,
since God has loved us so much,
we too should love one another.
No one has ever seen God;
but as long as we love one another
God will live in us
and his love will be complete in us.
We can know that we are living in him
and he is living in us
because he lets us share his Spirit.
We ourselves saw and we testify
that the Father sent his Son
as saviour of the world.
If anyone acknowledges that Jesus is the Son of God,
God lives in him, and he in God.
We ourselves have known and put our faith in
God’s love towards ourselves.
God is love
and anyone who lives in love lives in God,
and God lives in him.
 
Love will come to its perfection in us
when we can face the day of Judgement without fear;
because even in this world
we have become as he is.
In love there can be no fear,
but fear is driven out by perfect love:
because to fear is to expect punishment,
and anyone who is afraid is still imperfect in love.
 

Responsorial Psalm 71(72):1-2,10-13

All nations shall fall prostrate before you, O Lord.
 
O God, give your judgement to the king,
  to a king’s son your justice,
that he may judge your people in justice
  and your poor in right judgement.
 
The kings of Tarshish and the sea coasts
  shall pay him tribute.
The kings of Sheba and Seba
  shall bring him gifts.
Before him all kings shall fall prostrate,
  all nations shall serve him.
 
For he shall save the poor when they cry
  and the needy who are helpless.
He will have pity on the weak
  and save the lives of the poor.
 

Gospel Mark 6:45-52

His disciples saw him walking on the lake

After the five thousand had eaten and were filled, Jesus made his disciples get into the boat and go on ahead to Bethsaida, while he himself sent the crowd away. After saying goodbye to them he went off into the hills to pray. When evening came, the boat was far out on the lake, and he was alone on the land. He could see they were worn out with rowing, for the wind was against them; and about the fourth watch of the night he came towards them, walking on the lake. He was going to pass them by, but when they saw him walking on the lake they thought it was a ghost and cried out; for they had all seen him and were terrified. But he at once spoke to them, and said, ‘Courage! It is I! Do not be afraid.’ Then he got into the boat with them, and the wind dropped. They were utterly and completely dumbfounded, because they had not seen what the miracle of the loaves meant; their minds were closed.

Reflection
1 John 4: 11-18; Mark 6:45-52

“With Jesus, I can!”
The first part of the Gospel makes us see the importance of prayer in Jesus’ life. After a busy day of serving and being with the people, He went off into the hills to pray. Amid our busy schedules, do we set aside time for prayer? After a while, Jesus watched the disciples as they struggled on the stormy waters of Lake Galilee. He did not abandon them but went to their help. He told them, “Courage! It is I! Do not be afraid”. As we struggle too with circumstances that seem to be out of our control, we are not alone because Jesus comes to us. His presence gives us peace to go through these dark times. In prayer, let us listen to His words: “Courage! It is I! Do not be afraid” and let His presence guide us in the ups and downs of life.

Question for reflection:
As I pray with the passage, what is the message that Jesus has for me?

Hari Rabu Minggu Ke – 2 Selepas Krismas

Renungan
1 Yohanes 4: 11-18; Markus 6:45-52

“Bersama Yesus, aku dapat melakukan! “

Bahagian pertama dalam Injil membawa kita melihat kepentingan doa dalam hidup Yesus. Setelah kesibukan melayani orang lain, Yesus naik ke atas bukit untuk berdoa. Ketika kita dalam kesibukan tugas-tugas kita, adakah kita menyediakan waktu untuk berdoa?
Selepas seketika, Yesus memerhatikan murid-muridNya berjuang dengan ribut petir di perairan Danau Galilea. Yesus tidak meninggalkan mereka, sebaliknya datang membantu. Dia menyatakan kepada mereka, “Tenanglah! Aku ini! Jangan takut!”. Ketika kita juga berjuang dengan segala situasi yang tidak dapat kita kawal, kita tidak bersendirian kerana Yesus datang pada kita. kehadiranNya memberikan damai untuk melalui kegelapan ini. Melalui doa, marilah mendengar perkataanNya: “Tenanglah! Aku ini! Jangan takut!” dan biarkan kehadiranNya memimpin suka duka hidup kita.

Soalan renungan;

Apakah mesej Yesus kepada saya hari ini?

“Sertai enggau Jesus, aku ulih!”
Bagi keterubah bacha Injil mai kitai meda ka pemadas pengawa besembiang dalam pengidup Jesus. Udah sepemanjai hari gawa mela lalu begempuru enggau mensia mayuh, Iya mupuk bejalao niko bukit siti awak ulih besembiang. Lebuh kitai kiruh ngereja mayuh pengawa, bisi kitai magi masa besembiang?

省思
«若(一)四:11-18»
«谷六:45-52»

” 与耶稣同在,我什麽都能!”
福音的第一部分让我们看到祈祷在耶稣的生涯中是何其重要。一天的劳碌,忙于服务人群后,耶稣辞别众人,独自到山上祈祷。而我们,是否也在繁忙的生活规划中,挪出时间祈祷呢?
事后,耶稣看到门徒们正在与暴风雨抗衡。他们在加里肋亚湖上,逆风摇撸。耶稣没有抛弃他们,反而上前施援。祂告诉他们:“放心!是我,不要怕!”同样的,当我们正在面临看似无法控制的窘境时,我们并不孤单,因为耶稣正向着我们伸出援手。祂的出现带来的是平安,而这平安就是冲破黑暗的力量。在祈祷中,让我们聆听耶稣对我们说:“放心!是我,不要怕!”而祂的临在是引领我们度过那起伏不定的人生。

省思题:
当我以此经文祈祷时,耶稣要给我什麽信息呢?
