JUST A THOUGHT FROM JOHN GLYNN

THIRD SUNDAY OF THE YEAR OF MARK
21st January 2018

The earliest gospel gives us today the first words of Jesus, which are a summary of his preaching content in four bullet points:

         • the time has come
       • the kingdom is close
       • repent
       • believe the Good News

Jesus’ first point is that the time is now. Not last year or next week, nor even tomorrow. St Paul echoes it in 2 Corinthians 6:2: “Now is the acceptable time; this is the day of salvation.” When Jesus called Peter and Andrew, they left their nets “at once”. He called James and John “at once”. Others he called hesitated or “went away sad” like the rich young man. Lord, you are here before me now, calling me into this present moment. Am I one who says to you, “I will follow you, but….” (Luke 9:57-62)?

The kingdom is close. Just how close is God’s loving presence? Jesus says, it is not down the road or around the corner. It is closer than that: it is among you (Luke 7:21), you can touch him with your hands, the Word who is life (I John 1:1). Do I live as if he is that close? Am I at ease with his loving presence?

To grasp that God is here and now in Jesus, we are called to repent. Repentance means changing. It means seeing things differently, not taking anything for granted. It is what happens when we obey the Advent injunction: “Stay awake!” Repentance opens our eyes, enables to see everything with the eyes of Jesus. But nothing happens until we respond to that invitation. God gives us the key, but it is up to us to open the door. Believe the Good News. “News” is by definition always some thing new and fresh. How good is our God!

May the Lord bless you.

John
