Today Jesus seems to shrug off victories over Satan. What’s more important is that his disciples’ names are written in heaven. Christianity is so much more than just defeating the devil. Our faith is a positive faith designed to help us grow in love for our Lord.
Do I understand that I’m called to love and to imitate Christ until the last moment of my life ? I’m called to love the unborn and the elderly and not try to eliminate them because they are a nuisance. I’m to love the incarcerated and the homeless. I’m to love those who speak a language I don’t understand.
If I ever find myself burned out by the world, I need to ask myself, “How much do I love others?” Do I gladly sacrifice myself for others ? Do I seek the good of others first ? Jesus did and we need to imitate him !
DeColores, Deacon Doug
