Twenty Ninth Sunday in Ordinary Time

This Weeks Readings: Isaiah 53.10-11; Psalm 33; Hebrews 4.14-16; Mark 10.35-45.

Whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant  

As followers of Christ, this instruction applies to us as well. We are called to the humility of service that seeks neither personal glory nor gain….It's easy to pat ourselves on the back for the good works that we do... But Jesus calls us to a different standard--the one he himself exemplified through his life of service. Today’s Gospel gives us cause to meditate upon our association with Jesus and what we hope to get out of it. Why are we Christian? Are we only after the glory of heaven? Are we afraid to publicly profess our faith when it might hurt our reputation? Or are we in this for the love of the Lord, who came into this world "to serve and to give his life as a ransom" for us?
