    Isn’t it wonderful, the joy and peace the Lord wishes to give me in my ordinary everyday life? Even obeying God’s commandments are meant to give me a good and happy life, not to be a burden to me. The Psalmist exclaims: “The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; The command of the Lord is clear, enlightening the eye” (Psalm 19:8). The Gospel of John repeats this even more clearly: “Your words, Lord, are Spirit and life” (cf John 6:63c).  We are created by God to live in close relationship with and in obedience to Him who knows us better than we know ourselves. Doesn’t it seem natural or maybe even obvious that the One who created us in his own image and likeness would know what is best for us? 

    God our Father knows the right way for each of us to live which will bring about the greatest fulfillment and true peace. He knows the best way for us all to act in relationship to each other, whether in family life or in the larger community. Jesus formed his Church to be his Body on earth, to be a mutual support for one another as we journey through this world toward our eternal home. God’s commandments and guidance are meant to bring about respect for each other and a unity of purpose that only following Jesus Christ can do. Jesus said: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father, but by me” (John 14:13). We show our love for God by obeying His commands, but we also experience joy in our relationships with one another as we surrender to His will.
