Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:
March 6, A.D. 2003
A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:
What wonderful readings for the second day of Lent! At first blush,
they seem contradictory: the first speaks of obedience...choose a life
of obedience; the Gospel speaks of finding life through the Cross! The
two readings together sound the great themes of these forty days--
choose life, not death. Wherein lies the path to life? Through death
to selfishness, death to the slavery of disobedience!
And what is the result of this choice? The result is to embrace the
holy, sacred, life-giving Cross of Jesus. In the Cross is our
salvation! In the Cross is our joy! But the rest of the message is
Resurrection! It's all one package.
Are we willing to accept the challenge in this year of 2003? A year of
challenge that in the trumpet call of Jesus' teaching, we have the
challenge to prepare ourselves for an intense witness to life through
obedience to Eternal Wisdom.
Where will it lead?
God will show us the way...individually and globally.
