Dwelling on the Word of God: Suffering for Good (Friday 27th September 2013)

Posted on September 27, 2013 at 9:55 AM
 
From today's Gospel passage (Luke 9:18-22):
 
''The Son of Man' he said 'is destined to suffer grievously, to be rejected by the elders and chief priests and scribes and to be put to death, and to be raised up on the third day.'
 
 
Here Jesus reveals to his disciples the extent of what he must suffer but that this suffering is not the end.  In fact, it is the new beginning.  Jesus, the new Adam, is going to reconcile the world again to the Father and overcome death itself. 
By this act of love we too will overcome death.  And by following Jesus we can join in the glory and splendour of the heavenly Kingdom. 
By following Jesus we too will experience suffering.  He himself said that this would be the case.  But we must never lose hope and never lose faith because the reward in Heaven will be beyond our wildest dreams.
