Monday of the 3 week of Easter 'b'
Why do you come to church? Why do you pray? Why do you come to Jesus? Is it because you truly love Him and believe that He is the Son of God, or because you are hoping that He would listen to your prayer requests? And I am not trying to say that praying for ourselves, and for others, for our relatives, and asking Jesus for any kind of help in our struggles is a bad thing. No. But it can’t be the only reason why we come to Jesus, why we look for Him. Jesus said to His followers: “I say to you, you are looking for me not because you saw signs but because you ate the loaves and were filled.” We need to seek Jesus, not because He can fulfill our requests, but because we love Him and believe that He is truly the Son of God and through Him we can be saved.
