Ephesians 4:32

Be kind to one another, compassionate, forgiving one another as God has forgiven you in Christ.

+++

We see the face of God in Jesus…in the way he lived, loved, forgave, and worked for justice with compassion.

Jesus showed us that God is with us and for us.

And in the risen Christ we see that God always was with us and all creation…and will always be with us.

Jesus told his disciples over and over to follow him.

So we, too, are called to follow the way of Christ by serving the greater good…giving of ourselves for the sake of Love.

St. Paul’s words above spring from his own Christ encounter on the road to Damascus. While “breathing murderous threats” (Acts 9:1) he was planning to bring Christians back to Jerusalem in chains.

But his life was transformed when he received forgiveness and compassion when he least merited it.

As followers of the risen Christ…we are called to do the same for others.

How can I reach out in love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion today?
