The True Kindred of Jesus

The True Kindred of Jesus

Reflection on the Gospel of the Tuesday
In The Third Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Mark 3: 31-35

In todayโ€™s Gospel story, we have a revelation of what intimacy means for Jesus.โ€œ๐™’๐™๐™ค ๐™–๐™ง๐™š ๐™ข๐™ฎ ๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ข๐™ฎ ๐™—๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง๐™จโ€. Donโ€™t you hear a gentleness, not a sharpness, in Jesusโ€™ voice?

Mary was called blessed among Women not for the bond of blood with Jesus, but because she was the Women the one whose response to Godโ€™s messenger led to the Incarnation. In a culture where blood relationships counted heavily, Jesus by saying โ€œ๐™’๐™๐™ค๐™š๐™ซ๐™š๐™ง ๐™™๐™ค๐™š๐™จ ๐™ฉ๐™๐™š ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ก๐™ก ๐™ค๐™› ๐™‚๐™ค๐™™ ๐™ž๐™จ ๐™ข๐™ฎ ๐™—๐™ง๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™จ๐™ž๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™š๐™ง ๐™–๐™ฃ๐™™ ๐™ข๐™ค๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™ง” is pointing to a deeper relationship that is the intimacy or union with our Abba Father. This is the invitation which He still extends to all of us even today.

Oh my! What a privilege to be invited by Jesus to call God my Abba Father and He in turn recognizes me as one of His family members. What more assurance do I need that Jesus walks with me?
