Jesus Speaks about His Death
Reflection on the Gospel of the Saturday
In Jesus time many people awaited for Messiah for their salvation. Jews people carefully read the law and compared each activity of Jesus and believed him. Few Jews like Nicodemus, Philip, followed Jesus. In this passage some Greek scholars approached Philip and expressed their wish to see Jesus. Philip helped them and brought closer to Jesus. Jesus understood his purpose of life and said to them “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit.”
Jesus came to this world to serve the people and bring glory to God. when time has come to fulfilled his mission without any hesitation he surrender himself redeemed the world, thus heavenly father was glorified through the sacrifice of Jesus. Similarly, we all called to accomplished the task assign to us. Each one of us are special and precious to God. God is eagerly awaiting for us to serve him like his son Jesus and bear fruits in the world and heaven. Through sacrament of initiation (Baptism,Eucharist, Confirmation) god gave us power to fulfill our mission on this earth so that on 1000 years ruling we shall be with Jesus and his saints forever and ever.
Let’s seek help from holy spirit to guide and help us to serve god without seeking any glory from this world.
