COME, ABIDE, REST, TRUST
"Come to Me... Your souls will find rest." —Matthew 11:28, 29

Each year, Presentation Ministries discerns all prophecies received and summarizes them in a few sentences. Several years ago, the summary prophetic theme we discerned the Lord telling us was: "Come. Abide. Rest. Trust."

1) Come. We cannot remain in the same place. We must continually move toward Jesus. We must come to Jesus, and to no one else, to nothing else (Mt 11:28).

2) Abide. Once we have come to Jesus, we must stay with Him. Jesus asks us to remain with Him (see Mt 26:38), and not gradually wander away from Him. We must make our abode in Jesus and in His Word (Jn 8:31-32).

3) Rest. Just because we have come to Jesus and are abiding in Him doesn't mean we will continue to do so. As St. Augustine said: "Our hearts are restless until they find their rest in Thee" (see Catechism of the Catholic Church, 30). Jesus says that in Him we will find rest (Mt 11:29). However, we must strive diligently to enter into His rest (Heb 4:11), lest we allow the cares of this world to rob us of Jesus' rest (Mt 13:22).

4) Trust. Here is the "catch." Once you come, abide, and rest, you realize you have a cross to carry and a battle to fight. Jesus' heart is focused on the conversion and salvation of all. He wants all to come to know the Lord (1 Tm 2:4). So we must take action and obey. We'll be called to take risks and carry our crosses as His soldiers. We need to trust.

Come. Abide. Rest. Trust. Jesus "will refresh you" (Mt 11:28).

Prayer: Father, all I want is to know Your Son (Phil 3:10).

Promise: "Take My yoke upon your shoulders and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble of heart." —Mt 11:29

Praise: St. Kateri Tekakwitha was orphaned at age fourteen, baptized at age twenty, and lived only until the age of twenty-four.

MEET MY FATHER
"No one knows the Son but the Father, and no one knows the Father but the Son — and anyone to whom the Son wishes to reveal Him." —Matthew 11:27

Jesus came to reveal the Father to all people on this earth. He even taught us to pray first of all, "Father" (Mt 6:9). Jesus reveals the Father to anyone He wishes (Mt 11:27). Is there anyone to whom Jesus does not wish to reveal the Father? Since Jesus wants to reveal the Father to us, it obviously takes a hard heart and a closed mind to shut out Jesus' revelation of the Father.

Jesus didn't try to reveal the Father to Herod (Lk 23:9), which indicates that Herod had completely closed his heart and mind to God. However, He did attempt to reveal the Father to the Sanhedrin as they tried and condemned Him (Lk 22:69). He also tried to reveal the Father to Pharisees, Sadducees, scribes, and elders at meals and in various situations (Mt 19:4; 21:31, 37; Lk 15:3ff, 22; 20:37). Since Jesus wanted so badly to reveal His Father to them, it's understandable that He was grieved when they had closed their minds against Him (Mk 3:5).

Constantly strive to become like little children before the Lord (Mt 18:3). Beg God for an innocent heart to guard against the temptation to harden our hearts to the point that we close ourselves to Jesus' revelation of the Father. Study the Scriptures regularly, even daily. "Ignorance of the Scriptures is ignorance of Christ" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 133) and of His revelation of the Father. "Oh, that today you would hear His voice: harden not your hearts" (Ps 95:7).

Prayer: Father, "hallowed be Your name" (Mt 6:9).

Promise: "The Lord will not cast off His people." —Ps 94:14

Praise: St. Henry was a ruler of an empire who lived a life of unquestioned personal holiness. He let his light "shine before men so that they" could "see goodness in (his) acts and give praise to" God (Mt 5:16).

COMPARATIVELY SPEAKING
"I assure you, it will go easier for Sodom than for you on the day of judgment." —Matthew 11:24

Yesterday, in the first Eucharistic reading, the Lord called us "princes of Sodom" and "people of Gomorrah" (Is 1:10). Today, He says we are worse than Sodom, for if the miracles we have received would have taken place in Sodom, it would have repented (Mt 11:23-24). The Lord is likely telling us that we have not yet repented according to His standards.

We naturally tend to compare ourselves with others to make ourselves feel better or even superior. So, when the Lord compares us with some of the most wicked people ever and then says we are worse than they were, we tend to reject His words.

Why is Jesus being so rough on us? It's because He loves us (see Heb 12:6). He died on the cross to free us from our sin; so He does not want us to die in our sins (see Jn 8:21, 24), but to repent of them.

Could it be that the Lord is not speaking to someone else but to each one of us? Jesus is looking you right in the eye (Lk 22:61). Firmly, with love, He says: "Repent." Take His words to heart. Go to Confession today or, at the latest, this weekend. His words "are spirit and life" (Jn 6:63). Repent.

Prayer: Father, may I repent on a very deep level.

Promise: "Unless your faith is firm you shall not be firm!" —Is 7:9

Praise: "As soon as I lie down, I fall peacefully asleep, for You alone, O Lord, bring security to my dwelling" (Ps 4:9).

PRINCE OF PEACE?
"I have come not to bring peace, but a sword." —Matthew 10:34, RSV-CE

Peace only fully comes when the kingdom of God is established. Peace starts and builds in one human heart at a time. Until then, there is conflict — internally within a person's heart, and externally among people. There is resistance and a civil war (see Jas 4:1).

Jesus says that He came not to bring peace but rather a sword (Mt 10:34, RSV-CE). What sword does Jesus bring? He brings the Word of God, the Sword of the Spirit (Heb 4:12-13; see also Eph 6:17). The Holy Spirit wields the sword of the Word to perform surgery on all who need to be healed. This is much like a surgeon who wields a scalpel to cut out diseased tissue from a patient.

The sword of the Spirit convicts the world (Jn 16:8). The prophetic word of Isaiah in today's first reading is intensely challenging and convicting, even to the point of being insulting (Is 1:10). Do you want to hear that your hands are full of blood (Is 1:15) or that you hate discipline (Ps 50:17)? However, a surgeon must speak the truth before an operation. Far more does the Holy Spirit speak the truth while wielding the scalpel of the Word of God. Let the Word of God do its convicting work. Allow the Holy Spirit to operate as needed to bring peace into your life and family.

Prayer: Jesus, divine Physician, "Prince of Peace" (Is 9:5), grant me the grace to trust You more than I would trust an expert surgeon.

Promise: "Whoever gives a cup of cold water to one of these lowly ones because he is a disciple will not want for his reward." —Mt 10:42

Praise: St. Benedict is recognized as the Father of Western Monasticism. Over the centuries, countless monks and consecrated religious have been formed and inspired by his timeless teachings.

PRIMARY SCHOOL
"... that primacy may be His in everything." —Colossians 1:18

We should acknowledge Jesus as first in everything. When we wake up, the first word on our lips should be "Jesus." Our first activity each day should be praying in the name of Jesus. Before talking to anyone else, we first talk to Him. Before we pick up the phone, answer the doorbell, or put the key in the ignition, Jesus comes first. Before turning on the TV, opening the refrigerator, or pressing a button, Jesus is first. Before we pay any other bills, we pay our tithe. Jesus has the primacy in everything — financially, sexually, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.

Jesus is "the First and the Last" (Rv 1:17), "the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End" (Rv 21:6). Jesus is first chronologically. We seek first His kingdom and give Him prime-time (Mt 6:33). Jesus is first ontologically. "He is before all else that is...the Beginning, the First-Born of the dead" (Col 1:17, 18).

Jesus is God. He is not only Lord, but Lord alone. Therefore, we should love Him with all our heart, all our soul, all our strength, and all our mind (Lk 10:27).

Prayer: Jesus, Savior, Lord, and God, I decide to always live for You alone.

Promise: "It pleased God to make absolute fullness reside in Him and, by means of Him, to reconcile everything in His person, both on earth and in the heavens, making peace through the blood of His cross." —Col 1:19-20

Praise: "The Lord gives sight to the blind. The Lord raises up those that were bowed down; the Lord loves the just" (Ps 146:8). Risen Jesus, we trust in You!
