Gospel – Luke 11:29-32
The crowd is getting bigger because they want to see something amazing. Something that satisfies their curiosity. And they are not seeing anything except a man who is one among them. A man from Nazareth. Our faith is not about anything spectacular but about a person. Our faith is not about anything miraculous but about a person, the son of God who incarnated and became one among us in everything except sin. Our faith is not about anything extraordinary, but about the person of Jesus Christ who is above everyone. But often our faith is so shallow that we search something spectacular, something miraculous and something extraordinary. In this search for this, we forget the most important thing, our relationship with Jesus Christ. The Queen of the South searched for Solomon. Jonah preached and the people of Nineveh changed their lives. Their relationships changed and they changed. Their relationship with God changed. In our search for the extraordinary, let’s not forget our relationship with Jesus Christ.
