The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Herods Perplexity

Reflection on the Gospel of the Thursday
In The Twenty-Fifth Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Luke 9: 7-9

John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?

Herod, despite the fact that he had beheaded John the Baptist, had a guilty conscience and was not at ease with himself. The good and healing that was going all around him through the ministry of Jesus, disturbed him. Two things were happening: Jesus’ disciple, who was simple and ordinary, were declaring peace and harmony, and on the other hand Herod, who was strong and rich, was becoming agitated and bringing ruin to others and himself.

How do we live our lives today? Do we grow in worldly riches at the expense of others and then grow to living in fear of people and of losing our worldly wealth. On the other hand we can grow in relationship with Jesus, through His Word and interacting with Him in the moments of our daily living, thus becoming courageous and confident in Jesus. Herod sought to see Jesus more in fear because Jesus challenged his status quo. Jesus’ disciples served Him out of love and their relationship with Him. Where do we stand today, ourselves with regards who Jesus is in our lives?

Holy Spirit help us to get into a meaningful and loving relationship with Jesus, bless us with your gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and genuine love of the Lord. Help us serve Him with courage and confidence.
