But The One Who Humbles Himself Will Be Exalted…

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angel asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels, with love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 14:1, 7-14

On a sabbath Jesus went to dine
at the home of one of the leading Pharisees,
and the people there were observing him carefully.

He told a parable to those who had been invited,
noticing how they were choosing the places of honor at the table.
“When you are invited by someone to a wedding banquet,
do not recline at table in the place of honor.
A more distinguished guest than you may have been invited by him,
and the host who invited both of you may approach you and say,
‘Give your place to this man,’
and then you would proceed with embarrassment
to take the lowest place.
Rather, when you are invited,
go and take the lowest place
so that when the host comes to you he may say,
‘My friend, move up to a higher position.’
Then you will enjoy the esteem of your companions at the table.
For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled,
but the one who humbles himself will be exalted.”
Then he said to the host who invited him,
“When you hold a lunch or a dinner,
do not invite your friends or your brothers
or your relatives or your wealthy neighbors,
in case they may invite you back and you have repayment.
Rather, when you hold a banquet,
invite the poor, the crippled, the lame, the blind;
blessed indeed will you be because of their inability to repay you.
For you will be repaid at the resurrection of the righteous.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The wisdom of Ben Sira recommended humility as a means of winning favor with God. Here, Jesus teaches that humility is the the route to esteem, even among colleagues and friends.

The second half puts the first half in perspective, for it reveals, as occurs often in Luke, Jesus’ concern for the poor and the attitude for the rich.  He counsels , counter- culturally doing for those who can’t do back for us. This time, he predicts no earthly honor or affirmation, but an eternal reward, visible only to the eyes of faith, that will come at the eternal banquet that celebrates “the resurrection of the righteous.” [see reference] 

Additionally, Jesus points out that whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Jesus emptied himself, taking the form of a servant and humbled himself, even to the lowest place, as Jesus, even though Divinely human, did not see  equality with God as something to be grasped. God exalted him for this, to the highest place, a name above all names- in Heaven and in all of God’s creation – so that every knee should bow God before him.  God loves humility, and Jesus shows us that humility is something God Himself exalts – which is a Divine reward indeed.  (See PHIL2:5-11)

Strive to Enter Through The Narrow Gate

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With love and gratitude, here is the Gospel of Luke 13:22-30

Jesus passed through towns and villages,
teaching as he went and making his way to Jerusalem.
Someone asked him,
“Lord, will only a few people be saved?”
He answered them,
“Strive to enter through the narrow gate,
for many, I tell you, will attempt to enter
but will not be strong enough.
After the master of the house has arisen and locked the door,
then will you stand outside knocking and saying,
‘Lord, open the door for us.’
He will say to you in reply,
‘I do not know where you are from.
And you will say,
‘We ate and drank in your company and you taught in our streets.’
Then he will say to you,
‘I do not know where you are from.
Depart from me, all you evildoers!’
And there will be wailing and grinding of teeth
when you see Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob
and all the prophets in the kingdom of God
and you yourselves cast out.
And people will come from the east and the west
and from the north and the south
and will recline at table in the kingdom of God.
For behold, some are last who will be first,
and some are first who will be last.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

During Mass services today, the Very Reverend Richard Olona had said that the narrow gate is really faith in Jesus Christ, and that it is not just knowing about Christ, or knowing of Jesus, but it is having a relationship with the Lord Jesus. As the people mentioned that they ate and drank in Jesus’ company while He taught in their streets. The Very Reverend said it’s more about a personal relationship with Christ Jesus. It’s about acting on the Word of God, and developing a personal relationship with him. 

Additionally, the Workbook for Lectors, Gospel Readers and Proclaimers of the Word, mentions that the narrow gate that leads to salvation won’t remain open forever. God overflows with mercy, but God respects our freedom and won’t force mercy upon us. The master’s refusal to open the door isn’t a metaphor for God’s exhausted patience, but of our diminished capacity to accept God’s Mercy. At some point, we become incapable of asking. We shut our eyes and close our hearts, and the love God still seeks to give us can’t find a home in us. No amount of knocking will be of any use because the door we knock on is our own; only we hold the key, but at that point we are warned, we won’t make use of it. 

The words “I don’t know where you are from” do not imply that God makes an issue of our place of origin; rather they suggest the choices we can make can make us into something unrecognizable. Some will not find a home in the Kingdom because they’ve already made a home somewhere else.

Jesus speaks the truth with great regret that the Gentiles who were the last to hear the Gospel will enter the Kingdom ahead of those (the Jews) who were invited first.

Lastly, the Love and Mercy of God is so great; Jesus had also made reference on the Gospel of Matthew 20:1-16, in the Parable of the Workers, that all who enter the Kingdom of God will all receive a handsome inheritance indeed.

Jesus Speaks of His Passion

Jesus 2

Awhile back, the angels asked me to dedicate Sundays to the Gospels. With love and gratitude , here is the Gospel of Luke 12:49-53; with a loving message and angel message behind it.

Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have come to set the earth on fire,
and how I wish it were already blazing!
There is a baptism with which I must be baptized,
and how great is my anguish until it is accomplished!
Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth?
No, I tell you, but rather division.
From now on a household of five will be divided,
three against two and two against three;
a father will be divided against his son
and a son against his father,
a mother against her daughter
and a daughter against her mother,
a mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jesus is keenly aware of the price he will pay and is in “anguish” awaiting the “baptism” of His upcoming Passion. He came to proclaim the Kingdom of His Father and knows that some will embrace the message while others reject it. Jesus’ message will set the people against one another because it won’t be possible to remain neutral in the face of one who has been set ablaze with the Gospel 

Jesus makes no apology for the message he brings. In fact, he lays out a challenge, asking “Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the Earth?” One could not expect to navigate the length of the Colorado River without experiencing the turbulence of its rapids; they are an inevitable part if the experience. Just so, says Jesus, is the “division” and controversy that accompany the proclamation of the Gospel. They go hand in hand. 

Jesus understand and alerts his followers that the road on which he will lead them won’t be easy. Division will come, not because Jesus wants it, because water and oil do not mix, because evil won’t keep company with good, and because dark is dismissed with even the smallest flame. [see reference] 

In today’s time, the Christ body has grown so greatly. Families today, have grown in love; walking in unity with the Lord and in the Living Word. Christ came to set the world ablaze through the Holy Spirit, as the Living Gospel. We live under such an amazing grace through Christ our Lord today and always. Even so, the sowing of the Word of God is still very much needed now-which continues to set hearts ablaze with the Glorious Holy Spirit. 

The angels say, ” May the Gospels bring you peace. They are the Words of the Heavenly Father, given to Jesus for all. Jesus has the Words of Eternal Life, and all who accept His Words accept the Word of the One who sent Him.”
