Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint Mark 8,11-13
The Pharisees came forward and began to argue with Jesus, seeking from him a sign from heaven to test him.
He sighed from the depth of his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Amen, I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.”
Then he left them, got into the boat again, and went off to the other shore.
The biggest sign that God exists is you. Do you understand?
1) They put Him on trial: life also puts obstacles similar to the ones presented when one practices any sport. To strengthen your muscles, you must exercise every day with a schedule. Practice will lead to play better any sport. In your life, you have had many trials and have cried over these trials. The obstacles are hard because often times they hurt, but in the long run they make us stronger. God never leaves us alone. He is always on our side cheering us on. Fight and continue the battle with a great ally by your side.
2) Signs: you might feel lost and unsure what to do or where to go, it is perfectly fine to ask God for signs. But the important thing is to ask Him for signs of what He wants from us. Ask God for light so you are able to see. I am sure that the signs from God are in front of you and you just have to look closely. Go on and examine your life. You were not born yesterday, you have plenty of signs from God in your life.
3) The best sign, you. Jesus wanted to die to redeem all of humanity. You are worth the sacrifice He made. Your life is valuable. You are not a machine. You are a human being in search of happiness. Love who you are, your family and your circumstances. God is with you and with the cross you carry. Everything will end well. God makes all things new. Let’s begin the week looking in the mirror and asking am I a sign of God? Of course you are!
God bless you in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Take care!
Don’t forget: Heaven is our goal!
