From today’s Gospel (Luke 21:12-19)
‘You will be hated by all men on account of my name, but not a hair of your head will be lost. Your endurance will win you your lives.’’
Jesus, in today’s Gospel, gives us another warning. This time he speaks of how we will be persecuted in his name and that even close family members will betray us! Some of us may even be put to death! Yet, our all-loving God tells us that, despite this, not one single solitary hair on our heads will be lost. Not one hair.
We should never fear preaching the Good News and preaching about Jesus. God became man to save us all! Not just one or two but all of us! Yet not everyone appreciates this.
Our task is to tell people of this great love and to tell them that not one hair on their head will be lost; that they too can be saved through the love of Christ crucified.
