Living Faith Daily in Spirit and in Truth
This Is the Day the Lord Has Entrusted to Me; Let Me Live My Faith as Best as I Can
About the Book
This book contains candid reflections and practical applications of the effective Words of God communicated in and through Jesus and his Church. It would be a spiritually-nutritious ‘Foodbank’ for strengthening and enlivening of the people of God. It is a large ‘Gift-package’ of Scriptural reflections for Jesus’ disciples who strive to be genuinely living their faith in daily chores. It would also be ‘a sparkling lamp’ for their feet, and a brightening light for their path of holiness. The specialty of the term ‘daily’ is: Every day is the only day left in hand with us, and it is the only chance entrusted to us. As our ‘yesterday’ gone and our ‘tomorrow’ in God’s hands, everything happening within this day’s 24-hours will never, ever be replicated in tomorrow. It is on such conviction this book is structured. In ‘this day’-reflective light, the author underlines his main reason for writing this book: As I am personally striving to be an extraordinary disciple of Jesus at least ‘one day at a time’, according to my Master’s demands which are spread through the Scriptures, I see many of my fellow-disciples of Jesus too, in this laser and rocket-speedy postmodern Age, fully benefit by ‘living faith this day’ in Jesus’ Way, Spirit and Truth. This book would certainly assist the readers to listen keenly the voice of God in Jesus at everyday ‘Breaking of the Word and Bread’.
