Thursday April 18th: Drawn by the Father

It was the Father who drew me to Jesus.

John 6:44-51

For many youthful years, my prayers were mainly to Jesus. Yes of course, I prayed the ‘Our Father’ and believed in God, the Father Almighty, Creator of Heaven and Earth and in Jesus Christ… Ultimately, it was to Jesus Himself that I opened my heart. I could tell Him everything!
Then one day, I had a jolt like a bolt of lightning that it was the Father Almighty who drew me to Jesus and all I learnt was from Him. I couldn’t bypass the Father and get directly to the Son but must come through Him. Jesus has seen the Father and He and the Father are one.
As I continue my faith journey, I desire to always eat of the Bread of Life, of the bread that was broken, the flesh given for my life…the Living Bread, The Eucharist. I should receive, and not live for myself alone but for Christ who promises that “anyone who eats this Bread will live forever.”
May my Heavenly Father forgive the times I didn’t come to Him.
