March 22-28, 2015
The Letter to the Hebrews 5:9 says that “Jesus is the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him,” and in John’s Gospel 12:26 Jesus says, “Whoever serves me must follow me.” So, what does this mean to “obey” and “follow” him? First, we must read the Bible, which reveals to us who Jesus is and what he taught through word and example. Second, we must pray for an understanding of Jesus’ message. Third, we should allow our faith and trust to guide us in the footsteps of Jesus. Fourth, we must become living examples of the presence of God through our compassionate, loving and forgiving behavior. Then, we can say that we truly “obey” and “follow” him.
This week we have the wonderful Feast of the Annunciation of the Lord. The Angel Gabriel announces to Mary that the Spirit of God will overshadow her and she will conceive the Son of God. God takes on flesh in the Person of Jesus – the Second Person of the Trinity. Father, Son and Holy Spirit are all present in this marvelous revelation. What a strong and amazing woman Mary was at such a young age to accept the Word of God. She must have felt some trepidation and fear, but gave herself over completely to “obey” and “follow” God in full faith and trust. Spend some time thanking Mary for her bravery and love in giving us Jesus.
Next Sunday is Palm Sunday. Let us intensify our preparation this week for the events of Holy Week. This is the most sacred time of the Church year and we should attune ourselves to the events of Holy Week with a humble and thankful spirit. “Jesus is the source of eternal salvation.”
