HOMILY FOR THURSDAY: TWELFTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR II

HOMILY FOR THURSDAY: TWELFTH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR II

2 KINGS 24:8-17; PSALM 79; MATTHEW 7:21-29🗣🔥🔥🔥

In the first reading, King Jehoiachin and his people who fell to the Babylonians because they turned from God and no longer trusted him. We endanger ourselves when we disconnect from God and turn to our own ways. We expose ourselves to the devourer –the devil prowling round like a roaring lion. Thus, let us abide in him and we shall prevail over our enemies. Still on this, Christ invites us in the gospel to build our house on solid ground for stability, solidity and safety. The Word of God is the solid ground, faith and trust in the Word of God make us wise and in the days of storm and flood we shall stand firm. Lord, amidst the trials in our days may we not turn away from you.

 

On Christ The Solid Rock I Stand

Michael W. Smith
1
My hope is built on nothing less
Than Jesus Christ, my righteousness;
I dare not trust the sweetest frame,
But wholly lean on Jesus’ name.

 

On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand;
All other ground is sinking sand,
  All other ground is sinking sand.

 

2
When darkness veils His lovely face,
I rest on His unchanging grace;
In every high and stormy gale,
My anchor holds within the veil.

 

3
His oath, His covenant, His blood,
Support me in the whelming flood;
When all around my soul gives way,
He then is all my hope and stay.

 

4
When He shall come with trumpet sound,
Oh, may I then in Him be found;
In Him, my righteousness, alone,
Faultless to stand before the throne.
