  • The church is a community of people who seek to follow Jesus. This does not mean that we all think and act and look the same or that somehow when we are together, we are able to deny our own egos and rid ourselves of pride entirely. We learn today from this text that we, as individuals in a community of faith, as members of the church, are not called to dwell in our victimization, nor dwell in our habits which hurt others. Rather, we are called to be co-creators of reconciliation, bearers of God’s love for the world, ushers of justice and peace in the world and we practice that together, here in the church, and out in the world.

  • There is a pattern developing through Jesus’ teachings that discipleship includes the act of leaving one thing behind to go towards something else – of making a choice to stop doing one thing so that a choice can be made to do something else. We, as Christians are called to lose our self-centered focus, our protections from pain, our fears of failure, our fears of the darkness to gain a life which follows Christ, to gain a life which co-creates with God a light which shines into the dark places, to gain a life that will not taste death.
