Daily Bible Reflections - June 18,2013


THAT ’S WHY HE CAME

 
For you know the gracious act of our Lord Jesus Christ, that for your sake he became poor although he was rich, so that by his poverty you might become rich. — 2 Corinthians 8:9
 
It was the most emotional rosary I’ve ever prayed. More than a dozen of us were gathered in a hospital chapel one late evening, praying for the healing of the small daughter of our friends. As we interceded, her parents began to weep. Before long, the whole group — most of us young parents who could relate to how the couple felt — was weeping along with them as we finished the rosary.
       I can imagine this girl’s parents would be more than willing to trade places with their little daughter if only to spare her of the pain from her condition. I know I would.
       Right then and there, I got a deeper insight into why the Father sent Jesus to save us. If a flawed, sinful, selfish mother like me would be willing to trade places with her sick daughter, how can I not understand the love that prompted Jesus to lay down His divinity and take on my cloak of flesh?
       Jesus came to take our place! It grieved Him to see us suffering in our sinful condition. So He came for us every time we’d fall into sin, every time we’d be sick, every time we’d be heartbroken and devastated.
       We are the reason why He came. Rissa Singson-Kawpeng (justbreatherissa@gmail.com)
 
Reflection:Who are the people you’d be willing to trade places with to spare them of suffering? Jesus already did it for them.
 
Lord Jesus, thank You, thank You, thank You!
 
Venerable Matt Talbot, pray for us.
