TUESDAY, 8th Week in Ordinary Time
May 29, 2018 – TUESDAY, 8th Week in Ordinary Time
1 Pt 1:10 - 16 / Mk 10: 28- 31
FROM THE 1ST READING: 1 Pt 1: 13- 16
So, then, let your spirit be ready. Be alert, with confident trust in the grace you will receive when Jesus Christ appears. Like obedient children, do not return to your former life given over to ignorance and passions. Imitate the one who called you. As he is holy so you, too, be holy in all your conduct, since Scripture says, Be holy for I am holy.
GOSPEL READING: Mk 10: 28- 31
Peter spoke up and said, "We have given up everything to follow you."
Jesus answered, "Truly, there is no one who has left house of brothers or sisters, or father or mother or children, or lands for my sake and for the Gospel, who will not receive his reward. I say to you: even in the midst of persecution he will receive a hundred times as many houses, brothers, sisters, mothers, children, and lands in the present time and in the world to come, eternal life. Do pay attention: Many who now are first will be last; and the last, first."
In tlie first reading we are reminded to be holy as God is holy, "Be holy for I am holy."
In the Gospel reading the Lord assures his disciples that they and others who leave family, land and possessions to follow Jesus and to preach the Good News will be rewarded a hundredfold not only in this life but also with life eternal. Jesus assures us of the generosity of God to those who are generous to him and his service. Our Lord became man to save us from sin and death, the Good News of our salvation. This is for all humankind, but not all discover it. Those who discover and accept it are indeed blessed because this is the Good News that saves us. A man who experiences God's love as shown in the life, death and resurrection of the Lord Jesus is a man renewed, redeemed and re-created. Such a man enters into a new life close to God in the midst of life's many challenges and trials.
Whoever has truly met Jesus is prepared to leave everything for him. To follow the Lord is the most wonderful experience one can have, whether one be single or married, a cleric, religious or lay person, a prince or a pauper. His life finds life's real purpose.
And the reward for true discipleship is great, not only spiritual but also material and familial blessings. One enters into a new dimension in life, a life in the Spirit, full of God's love and goodness.
