Good morning brothers and sisters in Christ ! Health , peace and joy in their hearts !

I propose the following Gospel reflection for this day . The text is in the Gospel of John, chapter 14 , verses 12-14 which says : "I tell you, whoever BELIEVES IN ME , THE WORKS WILL DO WHAT I DO , AND WILL DO GREATER THAN THESE BECAUSE I GO FOR FATHER . What you ask in my name , that will I do , that the Father may be glorified in the Son . If you ask anything in my name , that will I do . "A curiosity , Jesus mentions the word Father 23 times in chapter 14 of the Gospel of John ! (I counted one by a . If you want to check just tell )

Through the sacrament of Baptism , the human being becomes the creature of God to a child of God . He becomes part of the great family of God . He created us out of love , so that the Father sent his Son so that whoever believes in Him should not perish , but have everlasting life.

Jesus calls his disciples to have faith and believe that they ( disciples ) has as much force as Jesus himself . It is He who says, " whoever believes in Me will GREATER WORKS THAT I DO ! ( Italics mine ) .Brothers and sisters , this is deep sentence of Master Jesus ! And we Christians , do not exercise or 30 % percent of inner strength that the teacher suggests the disciples . We humans , when imbued with that force , we do extraordinary things , because who tells us , instructs us and leads us , IS THE POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT , Jesus promised and fulfilled at Pentecost and who also receive at our Baptism , together with the 7 gifts of Him ( Holy Spirit ).

No matter the degree of difficulty that we find today in our lives and in society . What is important is to recognize that we have an Almighty GOD can HABITAR our hearts since these hearts are open , receptive to the promptings of the Holy Spirit of God . And that He is far greater than all the world's problems !Urge grow in Faith It is a process that comes with our baptism and continues into eternity . And how the process should be fed daily.

We have some " tools " for this. The main one is PRAYER ! . We should pray to the Father in the name of Jesus , for he will give us the grace to evolve IN FAITH , ripen from her in order to fulfill our role as evangelizers in this world . Grow particularly well participating in the sacramental life , that is , experiencing the sacraments especially the Eucharist and Reconciliation . Without the power of the Eucharist , we become weak , discouraged , without strength to face everyday troubles.

Also we use the Internet technology etc. information . to spread the Good News of the Holy Scriptures .Let's think about it ? Farewell and a happy and holy weekend to all of you , my readers and readers with blessings of health , peace , prosperity, harmony and joy in their hearts !

    Before discussing Saul's conversion we need to establish a point of fact. You cannot become a Christian and have unforgiven sins. If your sins have been forgiven you are a Christian. If you are a Christian then your sins have been forgiven. It is impossible to separate forgiveness, from being in Christ. How could you say I became a Christian last night but my sins were not forgiven? By the same reasoning you could not assert that I had my sins forgiven last night but I am not a Christian.

    What is true for us, was true for the apostle Paul.

    Acts 9:3-6 As he was traveling, it happened that he was approaching Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him; 4 and he fell to the ground and heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?" 5 And he said, "Who are You Lord?" And He said, "I am Jesus whom you are persecuting, 6 but get up and enter the city, and it will be told you what to do."

    Saul obviously believed in Jesus at this point, yet he was still not forgiven of his sins; therefore he was not a Christian. Paul was not saved by "FAITH ONLY."

    Acts 9:9-11 And he was three days without sight, and neither ate nor drank. 10 Now there was a disciple at Damascus named Ananias; and the Lord said to him in a vision, "Ananias." And he said, "Here I am Lord." 11 And the Lord said to him, "Get up and go to the street called Straight, and inquire at the house of Judas for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying,

    Saul believed that Jesus was Lord.
    Saul repented.
    Saul fasted and prayed for three days.
    After three days on the road to Damascus Saul was still not forgiven of his sins. Saul was not saved by faith alone, Saul was not saved by repenting alone. Saul was not saved by praying and fasting. SAUL WAS NOT SAVED ON THE ROAD TO DAMASCUS.

    Acts 22:12-16 "A certain Ananias....13 came to me....16 Now why do you delay? Get up and be baptized, and wash away your sins, calling on His name.'

    Saul's sins were forgiven after he was baptized in water, not before.

    Galatians 3:27 For all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.

    Saul was not a Christian until he was baptized into Christ.

    Mark 16:16 He who has believed and has been baptized shall be saved......

    Saul was not saved until he was immersed in water.

    Acts 2:38...and each of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of you sins....

    Saul sins where not forgiven until he was baptized in water.

    Paul was saved the way all men are saved. FAITH John 3:16---REPENTANCE Acts 3:19---CONFESSION Romans 10:9-19---WATER BAPTISM Acts 2:38
