January 19 Weekly Reflection

01-19-2020Weekly Reflection

Adults/Teens: John the Baptist attests to the truth he has seen. Jesus is the Son of God. Jesus is the one to fulfill all of the prophecies. John knows that he must do all he can to tell others of the truth of Jesus and he is unafraid to “testify” that Jesus is the Lord. How can we be more like John the Baptist in this week’s Gospel? Now that we know the truth like John, we are called to “testify that Jesus is the Son of God. Let’s go out and do it!

Children: Jesus is the Son of God. Many times, we hear Him called the “Lamb of God.” Jesus is referred to as a lamb because lambs were thought to be pure creatures and were sacrificed to God long ago. Jesus was without sin and sacrificed Himself for us to live forever with God in Heaven. Take time this week to thank Jesus for His sacrifice for you.

Take a moment to reflect on Jesus and His presence in your life. Pray together, aloud, the Our Father.
