The word of the Lord came

September 24, 2015 6:00 am

“On the first day of the sixth month in the second year of King Darius, the word of the LORD came through the prophet Haggai to the governor of Judah, Zerubbabel, son of Shealtiel, and to the high priest Joshua, son of Jehozadak.” (HG 1: 1)

It was exactly on August 29, 520 B.C. At that time “the word of the Lord” needed prophets to come. Later “the word became flesh and dwelt among us.” But the true nature of the word in the Old Testament and in the New Testament is the same—to be a message from God and about God; about His merciful love for us and His forgiveness and grace. And it doesn’t matter which way “the word of the Lord came”; He always comes to people, to us: governors and priests, ordinary people and nobles, consecrated people and spouses, as well as widows and singles. And it always brings hope and joy because we are loved by God.

“I am the way and the truth and the life, says the Lord; no one comes to the Father except through me.” (Gospel Acclamation)
