Let us not expect everything in our life to be voluntary.
WEcancome to imagine that we are walking on a path. As we move forward, the
natural loads increase: for example, we need a pole to support us. We are
looking for something that will help us collect water. But, at some point in
this happy walk, we have to camp, find a suitable terrain and collect enough
wood to make a fire and spend the night. Suddenly, when we have all this
collected and we are ready to enjoy a well-deserved rest. But, just at that
moment, a stranger appears, lost, cold, tired and dehydrated. What are we going
to do? Are we just going to turn our backs on him and ignore him like we can?
Are we going to run as if things really weren't with us? In the long journey of
life, this is what will constantly happen to us, but if we are Christians and
wish to follow the model of Christ, where he sacrificed himself for others to
the point of giving his life for all humanity even knowing that, many of us
will turn our backs on him and run away as if the matter of the Kingdom of God
was not discussed with us.
"AND TO ONE WHO WAS PASSING, SIMÓN DE
CIRENE, FATHER OF ALEJANDRO AND RUFO, WHO CAME FROM THE FIELD, TO BE BRING THE
CROSS TO HIM."
Mark 11. 21
God does not need us to make a greater sacrifice
than that made by his Son, Jesus Christ, that is, we do not need to be wasting
ourselves, or punishing ourselves for that, much less make any specific
pilgrimage to "win" his favour. What is clear is that, on certain
occasions, the sacrifices will come out of obligation. And in this situation
and if we are responsible enough, we will only accept what it imposes on us.
Obviously, there will be a tendency to fight even with God and they will not do
anything or out of obligation, but even for them, God loves them and they are
waiting for them. The good thing about all this is that we have this divine
promise behind us: You have not been through any test that is not humanly
bearable. And you can trust in God, who will not let you endure trials that are
harsher than you can bear. On the contrary, when the test comes, God will also
give them the way out of it, so that they can bear it.
"AND THEY TAKEN HIM TO A PLACE CALLED
GOLGOTH, WHICH IS TRANSLATED: PLACE OF THE SKULL."
Mark 11. 22
Jesus of Nazareth not only carried the cost of
what would be his own execution weapon, but he also carried with him the
freedom of all humanity. At that time, he was tired, injured, dehydrated,
mentally exhausted, in short, Jesus sincerely needed Simon's help to reach his
final destination, his sacrifice for all humanity on the Mount of Golgotha. God
does not need our help, much less does he need third parties to help him, but
sometimes to reach a heart that needs it he will use us just as he did with Simon
of Cyrene. What would our salvation be if Simon had not carried the Cross? How
many times have we inadvertently impacted souls and thus carried a heavy cross
uphill to someone else's Golgotha?
God bless you.
