Theme: “Love of the Works of God”
Homily by Bp. Ricardo Alcaraz
“Because we love Christ, we continue His works by bringing His presence and power into people’s lives.”
1 Samuel 16:1-7 – Because Saul continually rejected God, he lost God’s blessing
Ephesians 5:1-10 – We are to live like Children of God. Walking in the love of God, we are to abandon our old lifestyle.
1.(v.1-5) In Christ we have the answer to the needs we face.
2.(v.6-7) It is by God’s grace and the power of the Holy Spirit that we can do His works.
3.(v.8-11) We are witnesses of God’s grace and power.
“God requires us to obey Him in full submission; without complaining, without murmuring.”
