Second Sunday of LentMarch 4, 2012
OBEDIENCE THAT CHANGES US
Obedience to God is not like obedience to any other authority, because unlike any human authority, God want ONLY what is ULTIMATELY best for YOU. Unlike, human authorities, God cannot be corrupted or swayed by some ulterior agenda.
This is why we are called to be obedient to God even when it does not make sense to us. . . .and often times, it does not make sense to us because we can only see a glimpse of what God sees.
We see a star where God sees a galaxy. We see a person where God sees generations. Our vision is limited to our senses where God’s is infinite.
So when God calls us, we obey – because we trust that God wants only the best for us. . . . even when it is really hard – even when it makes as little sense as the story we hear about today.
