We hear – but, we do not understand. In today’s Gospel,
the Jews heard, but, they did not understand.
“…whoever keeps my word will never see death.”
I understand that statement of Jesus within the context of eternal
life – and, not simply one’s physical life on earth.
If I keep His Word, I will not see [eternal] death.
I read the liturgical Readings of today and realize from both the
Old Testament and the New Testament that God’s covenant is
kept if we do our part. Both the Genesis Reading and Responsorial
Psalm 105 emphasize the keeping of God’s covenant with Abraham.
This theme of ‘covenant keeping’ is re-iterated by Jesus.
Help me keep your Word during this Lenten Season – and all
to the writer of this reflection.
