Genesis 22: 1-2, 9-13, 15-18.
God tested Abraham and said to him; “Abraham” And he answered; Here I am, take your son, your only son ,Isaac, whom you love and go to the land of Moriah and offer him there as a burnt offering on one of the mountains I shall point out to you..They then came to the place to which God had directed them.
This is about you and me trying to hear the voice of God but failing to take it into action. How many times God spoke to us and we just ignore His voice. We are the pillars of change, we need to be the first to listen what God is telling us. Sometimes you feel like having a call of joining religious or priesthood but the world is calling you, and you don’t know which way you want to take. Which voice are you listening .World Voice or God’s voice. Try to think and where are you now with your life. Yes I am working for the Church and my Congregation but which voice I am listening now.
Lent is the time of many activities: Reflection, Sacrifice and Love of Neighbour. It is very painful to take a long journey without planning. It is time to forget about me think about others and pray to God to see the needs of others.
Gospel of Mark 9:2-10 is about transfiguration: Who needs this kind of life right just now, is me and you. Jesus took Peter and James and John and led them up to the mountain. How many people do you want to take with you? Or you are so selfish you don’t want to involve people on your journey.
Psalm 50: To the upright I will show the saving power of God.
