Responding like Jesus
  • Isaiah 50:4-9
  • Psalm 69:8-10, 21-22,31,33-34
  • Matthew 26:14-25

At the beginning of this season of Lent, we selected life with God over death in the world. As we come to the Easter Triduum, where we commemorate the passion and resurrection of Christ, we can see how Jesus Christ responded to the world. He was fully aware that He was going to be betrayed by a person He chose as His disciple. If I imagine myself in a similar situation, I would have ears full to say to this person and make him/her understand that whatever they are going to do is wrong. But Jesus chose to be silent. He did not react but responded to everyone with love. We may also go through many trials and tribulations caused by our loved ones. We may want to confront them or teach them a lesson. However, Jesus shows us how we should deal with things in life. Be it Judas or Peter, He only took His thoughts to the Father. He was sure that His help comes from God. His ears and heart were opened and connected with the Father. He surrendered His life to Him totally.

Prayer: Abba Father, may I see you as Jesus saw You. The same comfort and security is my longing. Amen.
