Gospel Reflection for the 4th Sunday of Lent B2012

“…so that whoever BELIEVES in Him might not perish but might have eternal life,”

(Jn 3.16b).

God loves the world so much and it causes Him to send His Son to save and protect it from destruction inflicted by people’s unbelief.  The Son has already been sent and the world has been saved but for those who care not, believe not, a whole lot of self-judgment to perish becomes irreversible.   

Faith in Jesus introduces the believer not only to the integrity of human life but also to the richness, beauty and sacredness of creation.  Faith in the Lord shapes us to being a responsible steward of His creation and of one another.  It is our faith in Jesus that keeps our inner and outer harmony with everything, with everyone around us.

Our Faith in God makes us share from the love He has for the world.  This world, this whole world is so loved by God and to it He gave His only Son.  We who believe in Him may have the entire world not as a hindrance anymore on the way towards eternal life but a sure sustenance which keeps us up from perishing. 

Thank you Lord for giving us this world as the visible sign of your love.  Amen.
