  Meditation on Today's Gospel: (Matthew 25:31-46)
Kingship today seems out of dated, especially in democratic societies where everybody is addressed as equal and free. God initially did not want to give his people Israel a king. Why? Since God alone was their King and they required no other. However, God relented and assured his people that through David's line he would establish a kingship that would last for eternity. The Jews understood that the Savior would come as king to set up God's sovereignty for them. They wanted a king who would free them from oppression and from foreign control. Many had high expectations that Jesus would be the Messianic king. Little did they appreciate what kind of kingship Jesus claimed to have. Jesus came to overcome hearts and souls for an eternal kingdom, rather than to conquer perishable lands and belongings. Jesus is crucified for his claim to be the Messianic King who would reign not only over his people Israel but eventually over all the nations as well. During his death and resurrection, Jesus made victory over sin and death and won the right to reign as Lord and King over all. Jesus teaches each one of us a very significant lesson about loving our neighbor and taking accountability for others. God will judge us not only for the wrong we have done but also for what we have unsuccessful to do. Now is the time of God’s compassion, for looking his help and grace to turn from sin, and to walk in his path of love. We can love freely, generously, and absolutely because God has already provided his love into our hearts through the gift and effective of his Holy Spirit. Ask the Holy Spirit to purify our heart that we may love as God loves and live charitably with all.
