The Way of Jesus
Mar. 5 Mat 17:1-9
How do we find God in this world?
Every once in a while, each of us experience those special “mountain top” experiences and many of us would say those are our God moments. In this Sunday’s Gospel, Jesus provides his disciples with one of those experiences, but then He leads them down the mountain and begins to show them a different path to God. It is His journey to Jerusalem and the cross. On the way, he encounters rejection, despisal, betrayal, torture, and finally death, all in the name of love.
In that sacrificial love, however, comes new life and blessing to us all. It’s in that kind of love, that we most perfectly find God. It’s in that kind of love, we find meaning, life, and joy.
