26 Apr Uncomplicated (Mk 15:16)
He said to them, “Go into the whole world and proclaim the gospel to every creature.” ~ Mark 15:16
Reflection: How do you answer the call of Jesus to “proclaim the gospel to every creature”? The example we set may be the only “Bible” some might ever read. Do we show Jesus to others? Do our actions give others an example to follow to help them grow closer to Christ? I believe that sometimes we are able to show others Jesus in the simplest of ways. Jesus loves children. Jesus tells us that the kingdom of heaven belongs to children. They teach us that loving Jesus is really pretty simple. They don’t complicate it. They allow themselves to just be open and close to Christ without any strings attached. While a mature relationship with Christ may be important to help us sometimes make sense of the world around us, I think that we often need to just simplify our relationship with Christ. Like an unborn child in the womb that relies totally on his or her mother, we need to remember that Jesus is right with us and allows us to depend on Him… all the time… every day. When we allow ourselves to be closer to Christ, we also allow our lives to be a reflection of Jesus to those around us. When we do this, we proclaim the gospel to everyone we meet.
Challenge: How can you simplify your relationship with Jesus? Has your relationship become more complicated than it needs to be?
