From the Psalm (105:8): “He has always been mindful of his covenant …”
From the OT Lesson (Gen. 32:10): Jacob said … “O Lord, I am not worthy of the least of the steadfast love and all the faithfulness that you have shown to your servant.”
From the Gospel reading (John 10:28): “I give them eternal life, and they will never perish. No one will snatch them out of my hand.”
How does your life manifest constant love, steadfast love, faithful love? The psalmist is recounting Israel’s sojourn in Egypt, “when they were few in number, of little account, and sojourners in the land” (105:12). Jacob is understandably afraid to meet his brother Esau, whom he cheated out of his birthright. Jesus is being called on the carpet for his teaching in the Temple precincts. Yet in those circumstances, each one remembers God’s constant love. Each one shapes his response because of that steadfast love. Each one acts faithfully in love.
