BUILDING ON THE ROCK


Recent statistics estimates that Christians account for 32 percent of world population. Islam accounts for 21 percent of world population. Other religions account for 33 percent, while only 16 percent of world population are considered to be without any religious affiliation. However many of this later group do believe in God. The agnostics and the secular humanists belong to this later group.

363

If the above information is correct, is it not worrisome that even with so many being affiliated to Christianity, and even many more others expressing some form of faith in God, that our society still yearns and cries for the upholding and practice of Godly ideals such as compassion, justice, truthfulness, selflessness, equity, mercy, love, etc.?

For us Christians, this is unacceptable. It is not enough to profess the Christian faith with our lips, without putting same in action. Hence Jesus’ warning to us today: “‘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.” (Matthew 7:21).

Simply put, we need to be seen to be Christians. We must have to practice our faith, in season and out of season. This is what it will take to build on the Lord who is our salvation, the everlasting Rock (Isaiah 26:4, Matthew 7:24).

Reflection Passages For Today: Isaiah 26:1-6; Psalm 117(118):1,8-9,19-21,25-27; Matthew 7:21,24-27
