Are you marching into hell for a heavenly cause? Be very careful not to stay there. Focus your gaze on the real purpose - Daily Bible Reflections September 16,2015


REMEMBER YOUR
PURPOSE
 
“Look, he is a glutton and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” – Luke 7:34
 
       Jesus knew who He is. He knew His purpose for coming to our world — to bring man back to God. He even ate and drank with sinners to show them hope in God’s love.
       We, too, can and should reach out to others, to the point of entering their world. But be very sure of your purpose. Because it will be tempting to enjoy staying in that world and forget why you went there in the first place.
       How many politicians run for office with the proclaimed purpose of serving the people — and end up serving themselves? How many worked hard to become multimillionaires to help others but ended up wanting for more and forgetting about others?
       I minister to prisoners in jails. But I do not need to become a prisoner myself to reach out to them. I give them hope to be free, not to tell them to enjoy prison life.
       In the same way, Jesus came down on earth to bring us up to heaven, not to stay here on earth forever.
       So be sure that in going down for others, you will go up again, bringing others with you. Alvin Barcelona (apb_ayo@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are you marching into hell for a heavenly cause? Be very careful not to stay there. Focus your gaze on the real purpose.
 
Lord, grant me not only the grace to dirty my hands and feet to serve others, but also the desire to be clean again and help others be clean,
too.
 
Sts. Cornelius, pope, and Cyprian, bishop, martyrs, pray for us.
