Over some coffee with JR Jaldon: a look into Sunday’s Readings

Check out this video to get a glimpse of the relationship Peter had with Jesus. I think it speaks or points towards all of us and how we encounter the LORD.

Jesus is a true gentleman. He never forces his way into our lives, but gently knocks, tenderly invites us into the boats of our lives. Often times we like where we are at in our lives and the idea of inviting the LORD may seem overwhelming, but it sure is worth it. While on retreat this weekend, I heard a quote that struck me, “Evil knows your sins while God knows your sins and calls you by name.”

Today’s Gospel (Matthew 14:22-33) Jesus calls Peter to walk on the waters. In life, we hear Jesus inviting us to, “Come” and walk with him on the waters. As we look towards another week, let’s walk with him on the waters in caring for the poor, in reaching out to those who we would not necessarily give attention.  In doing so, the waves of life don’t seem frightening and we can meet the LORD.
