USCCB Podcast of the Readings:
Everyone of you who does not renounce all his possessions
cannot be my disciple.”
True love is bearing each others Burdens by sacrificing ourselves for the benefit of others. If we have a desire to possess things of this World including the necessities of our life then our love does not reflect the love of Jesus. Jesus is telling very clearly today , if we are not able to loose things of this World to gain the Kingdom of God then we are not fit to build or part take in the Kingdom of God.
Building our life as per the values of Christ must be done in fear and trembling because it is a serious matter , we are following the most powerful Almighty God of Heaven and Earth who is the beginning and the End the ultimate, so when we walk our life on this Earth we must be very careful to do the Will of God or walk in the Gospel Values or Christian Values or love God or sacrifice ourselves for the Benefit of others in each and every action or moment of our life. This is true love of Christ or a true Disciple of Christ.
A Christian Disciple is not ready made and does not fall from Heaven with full of Grace but molded by the grace of Christ. Grace of God or light of Christ or the Gospel or love of God or Holy spirit is very much required for every person who wants to attain Salvation. God himself leads us towards himself, we must only look at the light and follow the direction of the light. When we go through this journey of a Disciple we must wait on the Lord with Courage for all things to accomplish in our life. To wait on the Lord we must be stouthearted ready to loose all things which block us to gaze the loveliness of God in our life and live in his presence 24×7 365 days of our life.
Prayer : Lord Jesus, Season me with your love so that I may foretaste your Kingdom as a sample or as a driver in my life. Amen
