My Reflection for Wednesday October 30, Thirtieth Week in Ordinary Time, Luke 13:22-30

Gospel: 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.

My Reflection:
What is the narrow gate that Jesus is telling us to enter before it’s too late? The narrow gate is the pathway that will lead us to Jesus. Jesus is always calling us to renew our lives and follow Him through that narrow gate.

We all know that there’s no certainty in this world. What we own could be taken from us anytime of the day, even our lives could abruptly end at any moment. But before all these happens, Jesus wants us to live our lives worthy in His eyes so that if it ends we can pass thru that narrow door and be permanently with Him in heaven.

What are we waiting for now? Let us renew our lives and let us walk away from our sinfulness for this is what Jesus wants us to do. This will not be easy to do for we already got used with the temptations and sins of this world. But where did these many worldly things has led us so far? It led us to commit many sinful things and it slowly leads us away from Jesus. Be wary therefore if you’re losing your connection with Jesus.

Reconnect and follow Him through the narrow gate now. …
