Christian free will, and the efficacious Word

More readings from today's Liturgy of the Hours that speak of our own participation in Christian living. To be precise, our participation in our sanctification, and, in the last reading, the promise of the here and now.

  Mid-morning reading (Terce) 2 Corinthians 13:11
Brethren, be joyful. Try to grow perfect; help one another. Be united; live in peace, and the God of love and peace will be with you.
Noon reading (Sext) Romans 6:22
Now you have been set free from sin, you have been made slaves of God, and you get a reward leading to your sanctification and ending in eternal life.
Afternoon reading (None) Colossians 1:21 - 22
Not long ago, you were foreigners and enemies, in the way that you used to think and the evil things that you did; but now he has reconciled you, by his death and in that mortal body. Now you are able to appear before him holy, pure and blameless.
