Are we to humble ourselves in order to love others? Are we wiling to completely give up our lives in order to love others? What is the measure of our love? Do we love only to be loved? Are we willing to follow Jesus and live as He did?
Today’s call is about God’s love for us! Endless times God loves us totally & completely. His love for us is unfailing and eternal. God by nature is Love, He made us and after our generational “ disobedience ” through our forefathers ” Adam & Eve “; God dearly wants our salvation. God is not a God who wants us to suffer or sin. If we feel we are condemned, it is we and our mind who condemn ourselves. God is always there, ready and willing to forgive us and to draw us to himself as a ” Father “. Remember, we learn some days back Jesus asking us to forgive our neighbor ” seventy times seven “.
This Sunday’s call is about are WE willing this time around to accept God’s unfailing love and over growing in the face of our character as a “ resilient sinner “? However, we are called to emulate corrupt tax collectors; licensed prostitutes; criminal of all kinds, hard-hearted terrorists, AND TURN AWAY FROM SIN – Matthew 21: 31 “…I tell you the truth, corrupt tax collectors and prostitutes will get into the Kingdom of God before you do. ” In the Gospel of Matthew 21: 28 – 32, using the parable of the ” disobedience son “, Jesus is presenting to us ( Sunday’s Christians ), what really is our love for him: We often say ” yes ” to the teachings, but when it comes to put it into visible action, we say “ no ” to the instruction. Which kind of followers are we? – Matthew 5: 37 ” Just say a simple, Yes, I will, or No, I won’t. Anything beyond this is from the evil one. “
