New Testament Challenge – May 8

May 8 – Luke 22:66:23:17 – “They said, “if you are the Messiah, tell us” (Lk 22:67)

There are many levels of listening as there are many levels of understanding. There is a strong tendency to hearing only what we want, what we like, what we agree with. But the reality is bigger than that, and at times I struggle. We do the same with the things of God. We say we want to know Him, but then we get struggle when we get answers we don’t like.

As a disciple of Jesus, I am called to remain open to what God reveals about Himself. I cannot put filters on the Good News. I have to maintain an open mind and see things from the Cross. Only in this way, I will be able to hear what Jesus tells me about the Father and His love for me.
