Serving the Word: John 8: 21-30


John 8, 21-30:
“Who are you?”

The Jews are baffled by the person of Jesus.
And in this bewilderment, they ask Jesus directly who He is.
Jesus also answers directly: “When you lift up the Son of Man, you will know that I am he”.
Jesus tells them clearly that they will know who He is at the moment of His death on the cross.
We can only understand Jesus Christ from the cross. It is on the cross that we understand that Jesus is total obedience to the Father and that He is infinite gift and love to each of us.
Try praying today in front of a crucifix and ask Jesus the question “who are you?
Even try to go further. Ask him also the question: “Jesus, who are you for me?
Answer it without fear and act accordingly.
Good day.
