Let Us See Your Glory, Lord

WEDNESDAY: Fourth Week of Easter

Acts 12:24-13:5/Ps.66:2-3,5-6.8/Jn.12:44-50


Let Us See Your Glory, Lord


Christ Jesus is the personification of humility and obedience. He prided himself in being a humble suffering servant of his Father. His sense of fidelity to his Father and mission to the world were flawless. Christ Jesus, conscious of humankind's fallen nature, was reluctant to condemn the world. From the onset of his mission, he appealed to the world: reject arrogance, disobedience and imitate him in his humility and obedience. Christ promised his followers there would be no condemnation for those enlightened by him if they embody his virtues and values.


God loves humankind. He hates sin. His plan is the destruction of sin and the salvation of the whole world. Notwithstanding the efforts and sacrifices of the Father and the Son humankind are still resisting the call to conversion. Their preference for the darkness still holds. The arrogance and defiance in many of us seem indestructible. In so doing, we impede the entrance of the Holy Spirit into our lives and delay the progress of salvation.


The corona pandemic mirrors the depth of our ego and resistance. The "me, myself and I" syndrome still dominates our thinking and patterns of behaviour. We want all our wants satisfied before we can comply - even in the face of suffering and death. Faith and salvation do not depend on bread alone but every word uttered by the Lord. Friends we are condemning ourselves.


Christ Jesus, conscious of humankind's fallen nature and his reluctance to condemn the world, appealed to the world: reject arrogance, disobedience and imitate him in his humility and obedience. Let us return to the Lord in humility and obedience; we will see his saving love.


Lord, in your great love, fill us with your wisdom. Open our eyes; that we may see salvation when you come again in glory.
