JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

TWENTY-EIGHTH SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MARK
14th October 2018

The letter to the Hebrews (4:12-13) presents Scripture as a subversive force, entering the secret places of the heart and challenging our conventional preconceptions of the Bible. It is not a book to be read and judged by us; it is the word of God who reads and judges us.

We live in a world which champions the supremacy of the individual, which puts the self at the centre of consciousness. Everything revolves around me. But I am a welter of desires and dreams, of questions and anxieties, of hopes and fears. Who am I? Am I enough? Is there some1thing m111ore?

It was questions like this which drove the rich young man of the gospel to seek out Jesus. He wanted to fulfil himself, to find the elixir of life, to satisfy his thirst for his own perfection. But Jesus disappointed him. Jesus, having dismissed the young man’s flattery, directed him to something very ordinary and obvious – loving his neighbour. Is that it?

Now the Word of God reads him. Jesus looks at him and loves him. “You are too busy stockpiling virtue. It’s time to let it all go. I invite you to look away from yourself, look into my eyes, and follow me. Lose yourself in me and you will find yourself.”

His face fell, his eyes could no longer gaze on Love. How hard it is to let go of self! How hard to trust another with the treasure that is one’s life! And Jesus knows it. He let go of his divinity to come among us and submit to the cross.

Jesus keeps his compassionate loving gaze on us even when we falter and turn away. He knows it is an impossible ask. But with God all things are possible. May the Lord bless you.

John
