The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

A Samaritan Village Refuses to Receive Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday In The Twenty-Sixth Week In Ordinary Time

Luke 9:51-56

This passage is giving us 3 insights.

1) Jesus knows his hour has come, and he sets himself resolutely to embrace the glory that awaits him in Jerusalem.

2) James and John, have seen the transfigured glory of Jesus the Christ, and have heard the testimony of the Father in Heaven. They know fully what it means to be Jesus’ disciples, but here their arrogance and pride inhibits them to see the log in their own eyes.

3) The Samaritans, themselves have leaven/yeast in their lives. The have come to know Jesus as the Christ (as John’s Gospel tells us in John 4), yet their rivalry with the Jews is more important than the Christ.

 

Join with me in asking God to grant us wisdom, to understand the proper from the not so proper in our lives. Not to confuse the important with the not so important and get distracted. That in our pursuit of Jesus and his Kingdom, we do not take on pride, because we see the cost that we have counted for Jesus’ sake, and start to look down on those who discount Jesus, or place him in second place in their lives. Lord bless us and help us to run the race, in the grace of your Holy Spirit, and let the process of running the race not disqualify us.
