HOMILY FOR FRIDAY THE SECOND WEEK OF EASTER YEAR 1 (16/4/2021)

Acts 5:34-42; Psalm 27; John 6:1-15

 

 “For if this plan or this undertaking is of men, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them”. This statement was made by Gamaliel, a teacher of the law and one of the Pharisees at the council of the Apostles’ trial. Beloved, whatever is of God will stand and whatever is not of God will fail. Therefore, if our plans must succeed they must be in accordance with God’s will. Often times we struggle without result because we operate outside God’s will. The Gamaliel’s statement also explains the reason the plans of the wicked fail. Their plans fail because they are not of God; Matt. 15:13 says  “Every plant that My heavenly Father has not planted will be uprooted”. On the other hand, the undertaking of Jesus manifested because it was of God and God was involved. Therefore, let us commit our actions to the Lord and our plans will succeed (Proverbs 16:3).

 

LET US PRAY

Almighty Father, we give You thanks for the many blessings we have received. We thank you for the victory over all the plots and ploys of the enemy. Those who try to shipwreck our faith, and make us ineffective warriors of the cross. Keep us steadfast to remain in your victory and grant success to the work of our of hands. Amen.
