Gospel Reflection

June 26, 2022

Thirteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time

 
And to another, he said, “Follow me.” God is calling us in every moment of every day, in every circumstance and experience. We can easily get distracted and not hear it or simply ignore it, pretending it wasn’t even heard. Some conditions must be met when we hear it and favorably respond. Jesus makes it clear that once we say yes to his invitation, we must stay focused and forge ahead. We cannot keep looking behind or worry about unfinished business. There are some tasks, and discipleship is one, that requires our full devotion.
 
There are many “masters” vying for our attention. We need something or someone to give us direction. Human nature requires it. Our motives and actions reveal what has our allegiance. It is tempting to give ourselves to masters that lure us with intriguing promises. When given a choice between a “master” that promises worldly success, abundant wealth, status, privilege, and security versus a “master” that asks for self-sacrifice, hardship, suffering, ridicule, and death, to whom do we go? While the promise of immediate pleasure is enticing, there is always a catch. For all that secular masters can promise, they always keep us looking behind, checking on ourselves, second-guessing choices, calculating options, and being slaves to excessive worry. Our guard can never come down. Only one master promises life: Jesus Christ. Hearing his call, we either trust him, or we don’t.
 
Saying yes to following Christ does come with a risk. But it also comes with the brightness of future hopes and dreams. There is no need to keep looking behind. Sins are forgiven, and regrets serve no practical purpose. God is not there. He’s moved beyond all that stuff. God is in the today and the tomorrow, and what he can continually do with our daily affirmation to follow Him. All we need to do is be obedient. St. Gianna Molla is credited with saying, “The stillness of prayer is the most essential condition for fruitful action. Before all else, the disciple kneels down.” Begin with prayer. We will not only hear God’s call but find the courage to trust that He will guide us where we need to be. God uses us in the most ordinary of ways through the simple daily expression of our lives.
