Thursday, November 20, 2014 - What keeps you from recognising the Messiah who will come to you today in varied forms and ways?

To read the texts click on the texts: Rev 5:1-10; Lk 19:41-44

The text of today dwells on the theme of Jesus’ rejection by the religious elders. The city Jerusalem, whose name contains the word peace, does not recognise the King of Peace, Jesus Christ. 

Jesus’ tears for Jerusalem are because Jerusalem did not recognise that if she accepted him as Messiah, true peace would indeed reign. 

The numerous attempts of Jesus to win over the people were met with stiff resistance. They had closed their minds and hearts to anything that he had to say because it did not fit in with what they had already set their minds to believe.

When we are faced with a new idea or something contrary to what we are used to, we too might find it difficult yo accept it. Our responses may be of varied types.Some respond aggressively, others by ignoring and still others by rejecting the idea and also the person who brings that idea. 

The text of today calls for openness and discernment.
