Moses often had to act as an intermediary for his people. They had this quirky habit of turning their backs on God. Sound familiar? In today’s first reading from Exodus 32, Moses pleads with God to not destroy his people for their wickedness.
In the Gospel reading from John 5, Jesus says to the Jews, “You search the Scriptures, because you think you have eternal life through them; even they testify on my behalf. But you do not want to come to me to have life.”
Lots of people today don’t want to come to Jesus to have life. They think they can find that elsewhere. Perhaps they put their faith in science or find life in riches or power or myriad other worldly pursuits. Jesus? Who needs that nonsense?? (I know…I was once there.) I can attest to the fact that life can ONLY be found through Jesus. Come to Him today and find out for yourself!
Father, thank you for the Author of Life, for it is through Him alone we find life, Christ Jesus the Lord. Amen.
