Reflection for Sunday May 1, Sixth Sunday of Easter; John 14:23-29

Gospel: John 14:23-29
Jesus said to his disciples: “Whoever loves me will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our dwelling with him. Whoever does not love me does not keep my words; yet the word you hear is not mine but that of the Father who sent me.

“I have told you this while I am with you. The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give it to you. Do not let your hearts be troubled or afraid. You heard me tell you, ‘I am going away and I will come back to you.’ If you loved me, you would rejoice that I am going to the Father; for the Father is greater than I. And now I have told you this before it happens, so that when it happens you may believe.”

Reflection:
A husband and wife went shopping while shopping the wife noticed that it was only her which was buying things. Her husband was not buying anything for himself. So she asked her husband, honey why are you not buying anything for yourself? The husband replied, darling your needs are more important than my needs, nevermind what I need it’s nothing compared to what you need.

How do you love Jesus? Do you love Jesus by sacrificing your own needs for the sake of the propagation of the teachings of Jesus? Do you love Jesus by allowing Him to take the center stage and you content to be at the backstage? Do you love Jesus by doing things for His glory and not for your own earthly glorification?

If you truly love Jesus you would be willing to forgo whatever this world demands from you for the sake of Jesus. The truest form of love for Jesus and for God is when you have learned to follow His demand and desire for you instead of you following your own desire and your own demand for yourself.    

There’s always a struggle for supremacy within you, should it be your own supremacy or the supremacy of Jesus. The wisdom filled choice is to allow Jesus to reign supreme in your life. By doing so you tell and show Jesus the depth of your love for Him.

How deep is your love for Jesus? – Marino J. Dasmarinas
