INTRODUCTION
Good Morning my dear brothers and sisters in Christ, today we celebrate Wednesday of the 9th Week in the Ordinary Time, Liturgical Calendar Year B.

FROM OUR FIRST READING
In our first reading today, Paul writes to Timothy, encouraging him to remain strong in his faith. He reminds Timothy of the gift of God’s power, love, and self-control. This gift helps Timothy stay firm in his mission. Paul also tells Timothy not to be ashamed of his faith. He urges him to bear any hardships that come with spreading the Gospel. Paul assures Timothy that God’s strength will help him through these challenges.

Finally, Paul Speaks of the spiritual gifts Timothy has received. These gifts are meant to be used to serve others and spread the Gospel. Paul encourages Timothy to rekindle these gifts and use them boldly.

FROM OUR GOSPEL READING
In our Gospel passage this morning, Jesus teaches the Sadducees about the resurrection. They ask Him a tricky question about marriage after resurrection. Jesus explains that in the resurrection, people will be like angels and will not marry. He also reminds the Sadducees that God is the God of the living. He uses the example of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob to show that they are alive with God. This teaching helps us understand that life with God continues beyond death.

CONCLUSION
Jesus’ words give us hope in the promise of eternal life. They remind us that our relationship with God does not end with death. We are called to live in a way that prepares us for this eternal life. We are encouraged to stay strong, like Timothy, and trust in God’s gifts. We are also reminded of the hope of resurrection and eternal life.
Dear friends, as we go through life, we may face hardships and questions about our faith. But like Timothy, we can rely on God’s power, love, and self-control. We can find strength in the promise that God is with us, always.
Have a Blessed Wednesday.
