TWELFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - June 25th
REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READING:
You have been saved by the grace of God in the person of Jesus
Christ. Hence, do not fear those who can take away your mortal
life, for the Lord will protect and defend you unto life everlasting."
(Reflection on Sunday
"Fear not - you are of more value than many sparrows"
What does fear have to do with the kingdom
of God? Fear is a powerful force. It can lead us to panic and flight
or it can spur us to faith and action. The fear of God is the
antidote to the fear of losing one's life. I sought the Lord, and he
answered me, and delivered me from all my fears.O fear the Lord, you
his saints, for those who fear him have no want! Come, O sons,
listen to me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord. (Psalm
What is godly fear? It is reverence for the
One who made us in love and who sustains us in mercy and kindness.
The greatest injury or loss which we can experience is not physical
but spiritual - the loss of one's soul to the power of hell. A
healthy fear of God leads to spiritual maturity, wisdom and right
judgment and it frees us from the tyranny of sinful pride, cowardice
- especially in the face of evil, and spiritual deception. Do you
trust in God's grace and mercy and submit to his word?
When Jesus proclaimed the kingdom of God he
met opposition and hostility. He tells his disciples that they must
expect the same treatment if they are to live and to proclaim the
reign of God. There is both a warning and a privilege in his
statement. Just as Jesus had to carry his cross, so the disciples
must carry their cross and not try to evade it. To suffer for the
faith is to share in the work of Christ. As one hymn states: Lift
high the Cross of Christ! Tread where his feet have trod. The Holy
Spirit gives us power and grace to live as disciples of Jesus
Christ. Do you trust in God’s grace to carry your cross for Jesus'
"Lord Jesus, it is my joy and privilege to
your disciple. Give me strength and courage to bear any hardship and
suffering which may come my way in your service. May I witness to
others the joy of the Gospel." .
HEALTH, WELLNESS & FELLOWSHIP
Did you know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit,
who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your
own…Use your body for the glory of God. (1Cor 6:19-20)
