Friday of the 27th Week of Ordinary Time
October 9, 2020
Christ ransomed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us,
for it is written, Cursed be everyone who hangs on a tree,
that the blessing of Abraham might be extended
to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus,
so that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
What is Law ? this is a very important question we must have the answer otherwise our understanding of our faith becomes no meaning or we do not understand our life and what Jesus Christ did for the World. Law basically are instructions given by God to people in various stages of generations. All people were created in the basic image of love but love was corrupted through disobedience and rebelliousness to God’s Commandment of Love. God instructed people through many righteous people about the Law of love but people misinterpreted the Law and Evil entered in the Law. The substance of love disappeared and Hypocrisy and Sin entered in the set of rules by rituals, formalities and obligations. It was impossible for a person to enter in to relationship with God through set of rules and regulations.
For example if we take Marriage as a Sacrament of obligation and Sacrament of love , if the participants the Couple take Sacrament of Marriage as an obligation and live their life without love and bring their Children up without the love of God , this Sacrament becomes a obligatory life of Law and there is no Jesus or Holy spirit in this Marriage, but a Couple live the Sacrament of Marriage in the love of God by giving and forgiving each other and bring their Children up in the love of God by witnessing them in that love then this marriage becomes a Blessed Holy family ,Holy spirit as their partner and Jesus as their Salvation.
In this World every Human need help and can not lead their life with any kind of education, intelligence,Science , self discipline ,self determination, self sacrifice or self works. The Works of our hands may be good in the Worldly point of view but we can not see the love of God in those Works. Human mind does not have capacity to love and need help from the Creator to balance their mind. When we believe in Jesus and follow his teachings by repentance, we receive special power from above the power of the Holy spirit. When we lead our life through the power of Holy spirit , we can call ourselves as we are leading normal life otherwise we are not leading a normal life but an abnormal life or imbalanced life which we are not aware of what is right and wrong in our life. We have lost the capacity to choose the right and wrong in our life due to our corrupted human nature.
Law has corrupted by the Evil so we must live a life of faith and love. Why faith and love is important in our life because faith draws the Power from God and love executes that power through our Works and ministries , if we miss one of these in our life , our life is incomplete and empty. No curse , No spell, No Evil, No sickness, No Pandemic can be part in the presence of Jesus Christ because we are recreated in our original image of God like when God created Adam and Eve. The only requirement is we must possess him 24×7 365 Days in our life.
We will have special powers through the Holy spirit to bind the Evils and command them to the feet of Christ. If we are slaves of Sin or addiction no evil will listen to our Command so we must renounce Sin and believe in Jesus and possess the gifts of the Holy spirit in Reconciliation, forgiveness and Prayer and bind the strong man of the Law and take over the Law by faith and love of Christ. This process we must continue each and every activity of our life, if we miss one single activity and go back to the Law of life the Evil comes back in our life with all Seven Capital Evil Spirits and will plunder our lives and disturb out Peace, love , joy and forgiveness. When we open one door to the Evil , all the Evil spirits enter one by one .
I have seen people who came to me for Counselling , the Spirit of Pride, Anger, jealousy and greed are common in one person and Spirit of Lust, Laziness, Gluttony in other type of people. The Spirits also like to live in communities or in groups so when we invite one Spirit the very next moment another Spirit walks in to our life and the temptations become very severe in that particular area of life and we fall in to that sin. Sin is very dangerous and route cause of every mishaps and confusions in this World so we must live in the presence of Holy spirit all the time.
I take these actions one day at a time. I activate my faith in my personal Prayer, Scripture Reflections , Holy Eucharist , Examination of my Conscience and family Rosary and filled with the love of God , Holy spirit.Then I take love to witness in my days Work in my daily bread by being active and not lazing around, schedule my day so that I may not waste time, take every person I meet on that day from the hands of God including my family members and enemies , take one initiative to do God’s Business of sharing love and charity like intercession or calling up one person and encouraging him in love. I do at least one hour Physical Exercise to keep my body fit. Most of the time a person in need comes to my life for help and I know I have to help him. Fasting one day in the Week strengthens our Will and Commitment to the Holy spirit. These are small things but matters a lot to build our life with our Master Jesus Christ.
Prayer : Lord teach me walk with you one day at a time. Amen
