Jeremiah 31:31-34; Psalm 51:3-4, 12-15; Hebrews 5:7-9; John 12:20-33
A pure heart, create for me, O God
The new, eternal covenant promised by Jeremiah became visible in the person of Jesus. This why some Jews and Greeks – seeking God – asked to see Jesus. They wanted to be his disciples. Jesus taught the crowd what Christian discipleship is: to be conformed to Jesus. The disciple is like the wheat grain. To bear fruit, he or she must die to self, reject self-will and sinful habits, live in obedient love, and practise the virtues of Jesus.
Lord Jesus, may all who seek you, find you and live in your presence. And may they know the consolation of your mercy.
