Faithfulness has disappeared

March 23, 2017 6:00 am

“This is the nation that does not listen to the voice of the LORD, its God, or take correction. Faithfulness has disappeared; the word itself is banished from their speech.” (JER 7: 28)

The most important factor of our growth is consistency. When we listen to His word daily, without excuses, slowly, but consistently, our relationship with Our Lord grows. His word penetrates our thoughts; from our thoughts it goes to our emotions and later reaches our actions, and we become His listeners and His followers. When “faithfulness has disappeared,” Our Lord is no more present in our words, and “the word itself is banished from our speech.”

“Even now, says the LORD, return to me with your whole heart, for I am gracious and merciful.” (Gospel Acclamation)
