“Look: there is the Lamb of God”
John 1: 29-34
As we begin this New Year we are invited to stop and reflect on the real meaning of what we celebrated a few days ago. It is a blessing to be able to welcome Jesus into our heart, to recognise him, and meet him. The grace of God is so powerful that nothing can stop or prevent us from knowing him more, it all depends on our openness.
Today in this reading, we see John pointing out to his disciples the person of Jesus. John was close to Jesus and knew him well and this is why he could point him out to others.
As we begin this New Year may we strive to be like John and point out Jesus to others. And may we also empty ourselves so that Jesus can live and be seen in and through us.
