John 1:35-42 The next day John again was standing with two of his disciples,
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusJohn the Baptist was given the wisdom to recognize me as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. He was a holy man who practiced self denial and who was interested in the plan of God for the world.
John knew about my mission, he was full of respect for me, he worked very hard and eventually lost his life in my service. He was a banner of truth, a warrior of justice and purity.
He who sees me as the Lamb of God like John did has received great wisdom. As a lamb I represent the meekness, simplicity, humility, obedience and other special qualities that any person of God must acquire. Being the Lamb of God, I am the sacrificial lamb who was destined for the unique offering to God for the forgiveness of sins.
Among the followers of John the Baptist, there were great holy men, some of them became my disciples and apostles. They all had one thing in common, they had repented of their sins, they were looking forward to the coming of the Messiah and they rejoiced when they met me, so much that they decided to follow me.
And for anyone who repents of his sins and comes anxiously to meet me, I will reveal myself and take him to my home. My home is a spiritual place inside every human being where I listen to the soul and I speak to it.
My intimate dialogue is the greatest treasure that a man can ever have. I am ready to listen to you my beloved soul. I am the lamb who was slain for your sins. It is by my blood that your soul will be purified of your sins and you will have eternal life. It is by my word that you will learn how to follow me and do the will of God.
Repentance prepares the way for my coming into your life, therefore remain free from sin and enjoy the spiritual way that I offer you. Remain in my word and you will know me more and more. Meditate constantly of the great gift that you have of being interested in me, because the closer you get to me, the closer I will be to you, blessing you with my grace daily, until you finally come to my heavenly home.
