Serving the World: Lk 21: 5-11


Luke 21, 5-11:
“Jesus said to them, “Many will come using my name, saying, “I am he,” or else, “the time is near;” but do not go after them.

A few days ago, we commented on this piece of the Gospel:

Nothing could be further from the feeling and thinking of Jesus than to want to frighten us with predictions of wars and disasters.
Jesus is not a prophet of calamities, but of peace, joy, hope and salvation.
What he wants to teach us in this Gospel is that we keep watch, as faithful servants, so that his love and salvation may always triumph.
He wants us to know how to read the signs of the times in our daily lives.
He wants us not to be deceived and left speechless by those who want to usurp his name by promising false salvation or making spectacular gestures.
He wants us to work to build the present by leading an authentic and coherent life. He wants us to approach life from his Gospel because it is the only and best way to discover God’s will and to prepare ourselves for his mysterious and saving coming.
Build your life on the firm rock that is Jesus Christ and have no fear of any kind.
Have him as your guide and master in all your actions.
Good day.
