godsWitnessToday’s Gospel

“’I came in the name of my Father, but you do not accept me; yet if another comes in his own name, you will accept him,’ (John 5:43).”

Daily Lent Reflection

In today’s gospel, Jesus rebukes the Jewish leaders who refuse to accept or believe in Him despite the evidence He gives them that He has been sent by the Father. He provides four witnesses: the witness of John the Baptist, the commissioning of the Father, the witness of the Old Testament, and the evidence from His own works.

Daily Lent Challenge

Who are the witnesses in my life that have pointed me to Jesus as the Christ, the Son of the living God? How can I provide witness to others today in order to help them accept and believe in Jesus too?
