Saturday of the Twenty-fifth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus prophesied his own betrayal and crucifixion. But it did not make any sense to the disciples because it did not fit their understanding of the Messiah who was hypothetical to come and free his people from tyranny and oppression. When the disciples heard Jesus' prophecy of suffering and betrayal they were afraid to ask further questions. Like a person who might receive some bad news from the doctor about some tumor or disease that could destroy them and then refuse to ask any further questions, the disciples of Jesus didn't want to know any more about the consequences of possible suffering, defeat, and death on a cross. They couldn't understand how the cross could bring victory and lead to new life and freedom in Jesus. How often do we reject what we do not wish to see? We have heard God's word and we know the consequences of accepting it or rejecting it. But do we give it our full allegiance and mold our lives according to it? Ask the Lord Jesus to show you his majesty that you may grow in respect of him and in godly fear of his word.
Word of the Day...
Matthew 10:38-39And anyone who does not take his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.
Prayer ...
Heavenly Father, Almighty King, we are sorry for the areas of our life that we have kept hidden away from the righteousness that your Spirit is working to cultivate in us. We are now confess those secret areas of sin to you and ask that you cleanse us and liberate us from Satan's power that binds them to us and holds us back from whole-hearted service to your Son. In Infant Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
