08-18-2023 Matthew Ch 28 v-0810 Meeting Jesus greeted cheerful




Gospel of Matthew Ch 28 v- Eight thru Ten


8 Then they went away quickly from the tomb, fearful yet overjoyed, and ran to announce this to his disciples. 9 And behold, Jesus met them on their way and greeted them. They approached, embraced his feet, and did him homage. 10 Then Jesus said to them, “Do not be afraid. Go tell my brothers to go to Galilee, and there they will see me.”


Overjoyed yet fearful you can’t deny the feeling you feel once Jesus is in your heart. Fear of the Lord comes and the Truth of Salvation guides your soul to peace. They surely didn’t want to see a ghost of Jesus they wanted to know they were seeing the Divine Jesus who gave them real food and real drink to live forever. You know, “Living water for Eternal Life.” We all search for the streams of Salvation and know why we share them; to live Redeemed! Amen. The waters that cleanse you also give you life for death will surely come without the necessary elements of water being poured into your being. How will you act when you stand face-to-face with Jesus? Will you drop to your knees like Mercy Me said in the song, “I can only Imagine?” Or will you embrace Him upright knowing when you let go He will be there to soothe you. I believe that overwhelmingly all of us will have a feeling of peace, passion and purpose enveloping your soul with a warmth that will resonate His love His faith and His hope that redeems your being by His Divine grace. The wrongs will wither the truth will set us free forever. Amen.


Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. NJ Emmaus in Oct. Kairos 56. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Prayers for a friend and his wife for a baby to be born. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Meeting Jesus greeted cheerful**


Tomb quickly away went

Running overjoyed yet fearful

Disciples His announced spent

Meeting Jesus greeted cheerful


Feet His embraced

Homage Him spot

Saying Jesus faced

Afraid be not


Brothers tell

Galilee go

Not quelled

Me know
