We return to the Gospel of Matthew and we sit at the feet of Jesus and hear from the Master. It’s a season where we knuckle-down and get on with the task of living and being the people of God! What is our first lesson in this long discipleship season? Give all our life to God and do not be afraid! The only thing that truly matters in life above all others is our relationship with God. We hear Jesus say today, “Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it.” If we are in God and God in us: even if we die – we win!
SO the real implication for our living as followers of Jesus is: Why be afraid? Let us pray that our fears of living truly a life for and in God will be taken away.
