Tuesday of Week 10 Year 1

Throughout our lives, we would have used the words "yes" and "no" several times. Sometimes both words are used quite a bit in a day. We may say "yes" when the circumstances befits us or provides us with some benefit or advantage. However, saying "yes" does not necessarily mean we are in agreement or we are happy, because sometimes we say "yes" out of peer pressure, or to save one's skin, or to fit in with the crowd. Thus, our "yes" may not always bring us peace and happiness.

However, there is a "yes" which is more satisfying and uplifting which we can never find on earth. That "yes" is from God and in God. Today's reading tells us: "with Him (Jesus) it was always Yes, and however many the promises God made, the Yes to them all is in him. That is why it is ‘through him’ that we answer Amen to the praise of God. Remember it is God himself who assures us all, and you, of our standing in Christ, and has anointed us, marking us with his seal and giving us the pledge, the Spirit, that we carry in our hearts." At our baptism, we said "YES" to Jesus, and we received the Holy Spirit to guide us and help us throughout our lives. As we continue to say "YES" to Jesus, we are assured by Him and there is no need for us worry or fear of anything else. Let us thus joyfully, consistently and confidently say "YES" to Jesus, for it is in Him that we can find true joy, happiness and peace.
