April 28, 2015 Tuesday: 4th Week in Easter
It is human to put our trust into someone we know deeply. It is dangerous to entrust ourselves to strangers and individuals we are not acquainted with. It is similar with our attitude in trusting God. We could not fully give ourselves to His disposal if we do not know Him much.
In today’s gospel, Jesus manifested His authentic trust in God His Father. As Christians, we need also to possess this trust by listening to the voice of the Lord Jesus our Good Shepherd. He will never permit us to stray away from Him. He is always on our side to protect us from harm. He will not allow the forces of darkness to lead us into eternal destruction. We might be experiencing pain, suffering, sickness and death. But the Lord will lead us to ultimate victory and safety in his everlasting home. The Good Shepherd assures us that amidst sufferings we can find peace and security. We should remain confident in the Lord wherever he lead us. (Fr. Marlone Ramirez, SVD Bible Diary 2005)
