Every day, we need to go to our quiet place...

Today's Scriptural Meditation Readings:

March 27 A..D. 2010

Scripture from today's Liturgy of the Word:

Ezekiel 37:21-28
Jeremiah 31:10, 11-12abcd
John 11:45-56

A reflection on today's Scripture:

What are we going to do? (John 11:47)

Jesus was gaining popularity. He was becoming a danger to the established way. He was threatening to overthrow the world as the Pharisees knew it. This is terrifying. Put yourselves in their places. Think about it now - if some young, charismatic person came preaching a gospel of hope and love and telling you to abandon your old ways and take up the new, what would you do? You have no way of knowing this man is from God. No way but faith. And faith will show all imposters for what they are.

What are we going to do? We ask the same thing when Jesus comes to us and tells us to give up one or more of our beloved sins - one of those things we love to have or do that we know we should not. Too often we are asking "What are we going to do?" and scheming to invent some way of following God and mammon. It just never works.

There's only one answer for a person of faith. The only answer for us is, "We're going to love Jesus and preach Jesus and bring the world to Jesus." That is what we are going to do. It is all we can do. Once you know the truth, there is no other choice, so, really, there is no question. We need not worry about it, because God will lead us and we will do His will. That's the glory of being a committed Christian.
