“TO HIM GLORY, HONOUR AND POWER”

Today’s second Reading tells us what is due to Jesus – Glory, Honour and Power.  But, as Jesus said to Pilate, “Mine is not a Kingdom of this world”.  The life of those who belong to this Kingdom, as witnessed by Jesus’ own life, turns our ideas of glory, honour and power upside down.  In Jesus’ kingdom the lowly, poor, gentle and merciful are at home and blessed.

When we think of Jesus as King, what image comes to us personally?  A fitting one is implied in a line of one of our hymns – “High King of Heaven, my Treasure Thou Art”.  The word Treasure has overtones of tenderness, respect and adoration.  It is a fitting kind of relationship to have with someone who loves us more than His own life.

The difficulty for us is to live the next bit – to love one another as He has loved us – and it is the quality of our relationsip with each other that will witness or otherwise to the truth of our love for Christ the King.

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS

John 18:33-37

The feast we have today, and the Gospel, give us an opportunity to reflect on the different ways in which we, and others, exercise influence and leadership. The authority of Pilate came from position and power. The authority of Jesus came from his integrity and what he stood for. Recall leaders you have known whose influence was like that of Jesus.

The values of the kingdom of God cannot be imposed. It is never a matter of fighting battles, or forcing others into compliance. Perhaps through experience you have learned the limitations of the use of force, as a parent, a teacher, a group leader. What has been the good news, the learnings for you, in this?

Jesus came to bear witness to the truth that we are all created for a purpose. What do you believe is the purpose of your life? Recall times when you have been able to bear witness to this. What fruit has this witness had for yourself and/or others?
