Reflection for December 4, Friday of the First Week of Advent: Matthew 9:27-31

Matthew 9:27-31
As Jesus passed by, two blind men followed him, crying out, “Son of David, have pity on us!” When he entered the house, the blind men approached him and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I can do this?” “Yes, Lord,” they said to him. Then he touched their eyes and said, “Let it be done for you according to your faith.” And their eyes were opened. Jesus warned them sternly, “See that no one knows about this.” But they went out and spread word of him through all that land.

Reflection:
What moves us to go to church to attend Mass? It’s our faith! When we are sick and in need of healing; what moves us to pray and ask Jesus to heal us? It is our deep faith! When we learn to ask with faith Jesus will certainly give it to us.

Faith is the healing balm that we receive from God, but not everyone has this faith. Those who have faith must do something so that those who do not have faith will have it. And this we can do best if we learn to share our faith in Jesus and the many miracles that He has done in our life.

The two blind men in our gospel obviously had faith for they shouted to Jesus, “Son of David have pity on us!” Who gave them faith? It was somebody who shared to them Jesus and in sharing Jesus with them they slowly but surely gained faith.

Let us also have the courage to share our faith and friendship with Jesus. For it’s in sharing our faith that we grow in faith and it’s in sharing our faith that we make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Have you already shared your faith? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
