Reflection for March 18, Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent; John 10:31-42

Gospel: John 10:31-42
The Jews picked up rocks to stone Jesus. Jesus answered them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. For which of these are you trying to stone me?” The Jews answered him, “We are not stoning you for a good work but for blasphemy. You, a man, are making yourself God.” Jesus answered them, “Is it not written in your law, ‘I said, ‘You are gods”‘? If it calls them gods to whom the word of God came, and Scripture cannot be set aside, can you say that the one whom the Father has consecrated and sent into the world blasphemes because I said, ‘I am the Son of God’? If I do not perform my Father’s works, do not believe me; but if I perform them, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, so that you may realize and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father.” Then they tried again to arrest him; but he escaped from their power.

He went back across the Jordan to the place where John first baptized, and there he remained. Many came to him and said, “John performed no sign, but everything John said about this man was true.” And many there began to believe in him.

Reflection:
How deep is your faith and belief in Jesus?

As we near Holy Week we hear Jesus inviting us all to believe in Him. Why? Why is He inviting us to fully believe Him? Because He wants us all to be saved from the evils of this world, this is the primary reason why Jesus wants us to believe.

We will not lose anything except our sins, worldliness and vices if we will choose to believe and embrace Jesus.  Everything is ours to gain including eternal life if we will decide to finally believe and follow Jesus.

 Everything in this world is passing and temporary we are in fact not in control with our lives. Within a matter of seconds our life may change drastically for the worse and this is reality.

 Jesus invites us to believe in Him for this will serve as our security blanket. And our assurance that no matter what happens in our lives we are firmly secure in the loving arms of Jesus.  Don’t gamble your life in this world by embracing the many evils of hedonism.

Embrace the love of Jesus which He generously offers to us free of any cost. Thus we already secure our life here in this world and our future life after this world. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
