The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Discipleship of Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the

Thirteenth Sunday In Ordinary Time

Luke 9:51-62

Love is not a feeling it is a decision. The best illustration to this is God himself. He has been loyal to us, even though humanity rejected his advances in the beginning, in the form of Adam, and it has always been rejecting Him. Yet God has not given up on humanity, he has always shown His love for her, and protected her. The Old Testament is all about this Steadfast Love of God for humanity.

To be a disciple needs us in the like manner of love to make a decision and commitment. The Old Testament speaking of Jesus says, he set his face like a flint, to listen, obey, and commit to God’s Will. Flint as we all know is a sharp edged knife. Likewise, we need to be sharp, focussed and single-minded in following Jesus. But there is assurance for us when we choose to follow Him, He will take care and responsibility for all our needs. One cannot travel with each of our feet in a different boat, this is not practical, and we will loose balance and fall. So too when pursuing God, you can never get balance in life if you have not chosen Him wholly. You will fail to recognise Him, and stumble.

Lets review out choices and see what is first in our life, and what we want first in our life. If both match and it is Jesus, continue in His evident grace in you. If it differs, make the choice to follow Jesus, speak to Jesus this choice asking Him for grace to follow him. Remember he has always been faithful, you will then see and experience His faithfulness in your life.
