Joy of the resurrection
  • 1 Maccabees 6:1-13
  • Psalm 9:2-4,6,16,19
  • Luke 20:27-40

In today’s Gospel proclamation we are reminded about the resurrection. If we deeply contemplate on these scriptures, we begin to realize that this is not only talking about something after our death, it is also talking about our present life. For an instance, do we not face death every day in our lives? Because of various difficulties like finances, relationship issues, workplace issues or a fear of the future. We need to believe that there is a resurrection and that Jesus has won our salvation. Then we will not turn back to death because when God raises us up, no one can destroy us. It gives us new life with freedom and love which will lead us to a relationship with our Savior. We do not have to fear or worry about things. It is not easy to live this way, because we are weak human beings, we need the presence of God’s love in our lives and he is waiting for our invitation to come and live in us with joy. We need to trust in him and wait upon him. In his time, he will raise us up amazingly. That is our God.

Prayer: Abba Father, raise me up, so I can enjoy the joy of the resurrection. Amen.
