Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for June 28, 2020.
Description: Reflection for the 13th Sunday of Ordinary Time describes the importance of keeping our eyes on Jesus and always making him our top priority. Nothing else matters as much as our relationship with God. This means following Jesus wherever he leads, doing everything his way, all the way, every day, giving him our 100% (no excuses for being mediocre in our faith), laying down our lives in service to others like he did.
Laying down our lives means making sacrifices, such as giving our cup of cold water to someone who’s thirsty. It means receiving someone into our busy schedules and listening for the prophet in him; for example: What is God saying to us through this person? When we truly follow Christ, we can receive all that he is and all that he has for us. When we let go of our fears and personal goals, letting Jesus lead us into new places and new ways of handling problems, we discover new life in Christ. His ways are always far better than what we had feared would happen.
