What is difficult for us to accept is because we do not want to understand
TODAYI read a strong note in my personal devotional
where the writer spoke of the uniqueness of Jesus of Nazareth. I say strong
because it must be recognized that if we do not accept that Jesus was unique
and special, it will be difficult for us to accept the kingdom of heaven and
obviously all that it implies. Today young people easily accept that Jesus was
special, what is difficult for them is to understand that he is the Christ. But
it is inherent to consider one point as the other. Jesus of Nazareth is Christ,
the Messiah, the God made Man who approached humanity to restore what had
fallen and defeat the work of the adversary and of darkness. If we are not able
to recognize this unspoken truth, it will be very difficult for us to
understand the Kingdom of God and its Justice.
"For the Son of Man did not come to be
served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Mark 10. 45
If today I had to put a slogan to the
ministerial life of Jesus Christ it would be: "SAYING AND DOING" and
I firmly believe that this was one of the circumstances that differentiates the
Master from the other Rabbi of his time. If we can detail all of Christ's
actions, he would turn his deeds into sermons and when he preached something,
he immediately put it into practice. Unfortunately, today it happens that we
preach and hope that the faithful in the congregations, alone during the week,
will make reality the truth that we have taught about the kingdom of heaven. I
have only read that Jesus Christ sent his disciples alone on one occasion, but
he previously equipped and prepared them for this action, otherwise he was
always with them.
"Then they came to Jericho; and as he and his
disciples and a large crowd left Jericho, blind Bartimaeus, son of Timaeus, was
sitting by the road begging."
Mark 10. 46
Life is not easy at all: divorces, separations,
fights, disputes, etc. In addition, we will meet for people more in need than
ourselves. Let us remember that we are wounded souls healed wounded souls and
that there is absolutely no one perfect in this life, less in the churches. We
will meet physically, spiritually and soul sick people begging for love, understanding
and help. But it will be up to us to present the only one who is worthy and
sufficient to free human beings from these ties and difficult life, Jesus
Christ, the Son of God who came to rescue many.
God bless you.
SAYING AND DOING
