Morning Spiritual Recipe: OmenukoJesus in “Living the Word”
Wednesday 26th April, 2023
Acts 8:1b–8
John 6:35–40
Theme: The Will of the Father… The Stone of Glory!

One would wonder why, as I have always heard people say that it seems good people do not last and suffer more in this life. I don’t know how true it is, but one must note that God’s ways are different from ours. God does not build his glory and presence on plain ground. He, instead, transforms mountains and rough edges into plain ground for the glory of His Name. This is what Jesus expressed in the Gospel: despite the problems and difficulties, it is the will of the Father that all be gathered to him. In the first reading, we see the sufferings of the early church in the hands of Saul, who later became a great missionary, Paul, and the death of Stephen. The stones with which the persecutors used to throw at Stephen did not end Stephen in death but endeared him to his crown of glory as the first Matyr.
Child of God, the pains you endure today while making efforts will eventually become the foundation of your testimony and glory. Keep trying.

Good morning and Remain blessed!
