Thursday 1 December

Thursday of the 1st week of Advent
Gospel – Matthew 7:21,24-27
“It is not those who say to me, “Lord, Lord,” who will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven.” Because the one who only calls “Lord, Lord,” keeps Lord away and goes to Him in case of necessity. One who only calls “Lord, Lord,” wants that the Lord blesses whatever he does. One who only calls “Lord, Lord,” listens only to himself. What God wants is a different thing. God wants that His Word be incarnated in our life. He wants that your life be constructed according to His Word. He wanted that His Word becomes the rock of my life upon which I construct. His Word becomes my life. Then we will recognize that the call “Lord, Lord,” is superficial if the Word of God is not becoming a reality in my life. Where my life becomes part of His Word. Then the call “Lord, Lord,” is substituted by “Yes, Yes, Lord”. Let’s reflect: Is the Word of God becoming a reality in my life or I just keep the Word of God away by just calling “Lord, Lord,”?
