Jesus said, My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me. I give them eternal life and they will not be lost forever and no one will snatch them out of my hand

Jesus establishes a loving relationship with each of us, we are the most precious thing He possesses to the point of passing on to us His own life which is eternal.

Jn 12:47

If anyone hears my words and does not observe them ,I will not condemn him; for I did not come to condemn the world, but to save the world. Whoever rejects me and does not accept my words , has those who condemn him ; the word I have spoken will condemn him on the last day.

Jesus does not condemn anyone, it is not in his will . Everyone is responsible for himself and if there is condemnation this is self-condemnation and the Lord tries until the last moment to pull us out of the evil that we bring upon ourselves.

Mark 16:15

At that time Jesus appeared to the Eleven and said to them, Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.

These words are an explicit mandate from Jesus. The proclamation of the Gospel consists first of all in knowing how to welcome those one encounters and share the joy ,the beauty, the love that the Lord puts into our existence; He does the rest.

Jn 14:2-3

Said Jesus, In my Father’s house are many mansions . When I have gone and prepared a place for you, I will come again and take you with me , so that where I am you may be also.

We will have a wonderful meeting with Jesus when we leave this body of flesh and this earth and he will show us a new dwelling where we will experience an endless feast with all those who are tenants in the Father’s house

Jn 14:13-14

Jesus said, Whatever you ask in my name ,I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask anything in my name I will do it.

To ask in the name of Jesus means not to look at one’s own interest, one’s own affirmation , to want the good of all , to desire the salvation of all , the glory of God ; to have boundless trust in divine mercy and to know that God always wants our good.

Jn 15:5

He who abides in me and I in him ,bears much fruit, for without me you can do nothing.

The condition for being humanly and spiritually aware, positive people ,capable of oblative love and creative fruitfulness is to place oneself in a dimension of permanent communion with Jesus through the sacraments and prayer.

Matthew 11:25

Jesus said,” I praise you ,Father Lord of heaven and earth, for you have hidden these things from the wise and the learned and revealed them to the little ones. “

God is simplicity, and when it is revealed it is those who have no ideological superstructures who can understand it and absolute humility because they are empty of self, so that they can receive it and taste it in its simple truth .
