Reflection for July 8, Wednesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time: Matthew 10:1-7


Gospel: Matthew 10:1-7
Jesus summoned his Twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to drive them out and to cure every disease and every illness. The names of the Twelve Apostles are these: first, Simon called Peter, and his brother Andrew; James, the son of Zebedee, and his brother John; Philip and Bartholomew, Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James, the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddeus; Simon the Cananean, and Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus.

Jesus sent out these Twelve after instructing them thus, “Do not go into pagan territory or enter a Samaritan town. Go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. As you go, make this proclamation: ‘The Kingdom of heaven is at hand.

Reflection:
Where does The Kingdom of Heaven lies? It lies within you and it has been with you since you’ve been baptized. But you may say,  if the kingdom of heaven is within me, why is it that my life is still problematic? This is for the reason that you refuse to live your life according to God’s will for you. You are living your life according to your own will and not according to God’s will.

So what happens when you live your life according to your own terms? You open your life to many problems, problems that you could actually avoid if you only live your life according to the will of God. But many of us do not have an awareness of the will of God because we overpower it with our own selfish will for ourselves.

It’s not difficult to know God’s will for you, by going to Holy Mass you will begin to discern God’s will for your life. By reading your bible you will discern the will of God for you. By your frequent interactions with Jesus through your prayers you will discern the will of God for you.  

Many of us are lost in this world because we are not always in touch with Jesus. Yet we are always in touch with materialism and other worldly things. Thus we have no awareness of the kingdom of heaven that resides within us already. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
