Holy Week Wednesday

St Matthew 22: 41-46

While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them, 42 “What do you think about the Messiah? Whose son is he?”

“The son of David,” they replied.

43 He said to them, “How is it then that David, speaking by the Spirit, calls him ‘Lord’? For he says,  44 “‘The Lord said to my Lord:     “Sit at my right hand
until I put your enemies     under your feet.”’ 45 If then David calls him ‘Lord,’ how can he be his son?” 46 No one could say a word in reply, and from that day on no one dared to ask him any more questions.


Why could the Pharisees not respond to Jesus?  What question did Jesus ask them that had them stumped?   Do people ask you questions about your faith?


Prayer:   Great God,  when our path looks dark and our burdens grow beyond our strength,  remind us that You are a God of love.  Increase our faith so that we become Your light to our journey and lay our burdens down at Your feet.  Help us to leave our darkened paths and burdens behind so that we can go forward to meet Christ with palms of joy in our hands,  for Jesus will lead us into Your eternal joy.  Amen.
