Living the life of Jesus

26th Sunday in Ordinary Time | Mk 9:38-43; 45; 47-48
30 September 2018

Reflection: Our Readings this Sunday invite us to see the wonders of God’s ways. Our attitude is always to segregate things according to how things work, we can easily compartmentalize things. God is a God of unity and of harmony. He gives us gifts to use for the building up of His Kingdom here on earth and for our salvation.

In our 1st Reading, God gave the elders of the Israelites the gift of prophecy to help Moses fulfill His tasks, even those elders who were not present were given and Joshua was perplexed with what happened so he told Moses. Moses, being familiar with the things of God, told him how he wished that all would be given the gift as well. The same scenario happened, some were exorcising in the name of Jesus but John wanted them to be stopped by Jesus. However, the Lord reminded him that whoever is not against Him is for Him. Whatever is contrary to Jesus and for the building up of the faith and Kingdom should be discarded. A Christian should live the life of Jesus. They should not espouse anything contrary to the faith that Jesus built. Christians should not contaminate the faith with practices that are not Christian and mostly superstitious in origin.
