COME TO ME……

Today, in his gospel, Matthew continues to enhance our understanding of what is at the heart of faith and discipleship. Growth in faith as in life brings change, challenges, doubt, insecurity and maybe at times a feeling of loneliness.

As the years pass, we can lose sight and possibly forget the core values of our baptism- our initial commitment to follow the path of Jesus. In the modern world following Jesus can at times seem “uncool” and not the thing to do. Jesus who aware of all this invites us to turn to Him in these times of self-doubt and anxiety. “Come to me” is His call “and I will give you rest.” 

He is always there for us with arms wide open. So when we do encounter uncertainty let us not be afraid to “put our hand in the hand of the man from Galilee”.

SEEING YOUR LIFE THROUGH THE LENS OF THE GOSPELS

Matthew 11:25-30

For Jesus the key to a personal knowledge of God and relationship with God is not primarily through academic study but through a mind and heart open to learn. Recall moments when you had a sense that your relationship with God took a significant step forward. What kind of dispositions prepared you for that growth? 

Jesus was dealing with a society in which people were very conscious of status, dignity and external appearances. He wanted to break down the barriers this created so that all would be aware of their worth and dignity. Perhaps you can recall someone who was not highly thought of in human terms, but who was a light to you.

In v.27 Jesus lets us into the secret of his relationship with his Father, one of total trust. This trust freed him from anxiety and worry about himself. As a result he was a person of gentle and humble heart and was able to bring rest to those who were overburdened. Recall people whose trust in God enabled them to be supportive to others who were stressed or burdened. Perhaps you have experienced this yourself?

Recall and give thanks for people who, like Jesus in the story, were able to combine challenge with sympathetic support and understanding. Perhaps you have been able to do this for others at times also.

(John Byrne, OSA, Intercom, 2017)


THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

… Faith is like a flashlight: no matter how dark it gets, it will help you find your way. Every tomorrow has two handles; we can take hold by the handle of anxiety or by the handle of faith…

(Southern Baptist Brotherhood Journal)
