19th Sunday in Ordinary Time

August 8, 2010

PLEASED WITH THE GIFT

We are challenged today to have courage; to have no fear.  Jesus tells us, “Do not be afraid any longer, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the kingdom.”

Do you know why Jesus tells us not be afraid so often?  Because we are fearful people.  Do you know the number one fear?   (not public speaking, heights, insects, drowning, or clowns)  Rejection.  And I think many of us are very afraid that at the end of days, God will reject us and so we pray, go to church, obey the commandments out of fear.

But what kind of relationship is motivated by fear?

Our relationship must be more than that, but to find out what this gift entails, you’ll have to tune in.
