 4th Sunday OT – 2018

 

“And they were astonished at his teaching”

 

What has Jesus taught them? What did He tell them that they were filled with emotional impact of overwhelming surprise or even shock? Was the Gospel different from the one we hear today?

 No, it is the same as it was then, yet we have got used to it so much that it may seem that we are deaf, we do not hear anymore what Jesus is saying to us. Simply, we just do not listen!

 Let us see. What do we remember of today’s Gospel? Did we get something from the last Sunday’s Gospel? Yeah, it is hard to remember. What is our excuse?

 Jesus is calling us to conversion, to be free of evil and wrong things, doings, words and thoughts. Are we really free of them? Are we taking His words seriously? It needs some effort or maybe even a struggle. He is not going to do it instead of us, we have to do it.

Let us listen to Jesus’ words more attentively then may be evil will be chased out of us.
