Dwelling on the Word of God: Listen and Follow (Tuesday 13th May 2014)

Posted on May 13, 2014 at 7:44 AM
Sheep following the Good Shepherd in Fatima today
 
From today’s Gospel (John 10:22-30):
 
‘The sheep that belong to me listen to my voice;
I know them and they follow me.
I give them eternal life;’
 
 
In today’s Gospel Jesus is once again emphasising the great gift he has given us: the gift of himself so that we may have eternal life.  Jesus was crucified, died and rose again to save us from sin and to show us that he really is the Son of God.  Those who listen to him and believe in him are truly blessed.  Look at St Paul who, on the road to Damascus where he fully intended to persecute Christians, was met by Christ and suddenly realised that he was wrong to deny the Christian faith.  In that moment St Paul became one of Christ’s sheep and was granted the gift of eternal life. 
 
Do we consider ourselves sheep belonging to Christ?  Are we prepared to listen to his voice and follow him? 
 
We are so blessed to have so many ways to interact with Jesus.  We have the glory of Holy Mass, we have prayers and devotions, we have the Word of God, and we have simple quiet time in the presence of Jesus, especially in the Blessed Sacrament.  These are all opportunities to interact with Jesus and to listen to his voice. 
 
Listen and follow….two simple acts of witness to Christ.  We are asked today to listen to Jesus and to follow him and in so doing we may be blessed with the gift of eternal life.
