REFLECTION

Do we serve God with an undivided heart? The ten commandments are introduced to us in the first reading as the way God’s people achieve freedom. They have been decreed by the one who liberated his beloved people from slavery. God the liberator demands total allegiance, both in the worship we give him and in our relationships with other people. In the gospel, Jesus acts on behalf of God to restore true worship to his Father’s house and save it from desecration. But he goes further: he declares that he will replace the temple with another sanctuary, where God will be worshipped perfectly. He refers to his own body, for Jesus will be crucified by his enemies only to be raised up on the third day. By his perfect obedience, Jesus restores and perfect our worship of God in his own body. Christ crucified is the sign of complete and undivided worshipful service. To those who do not understand, the cross is a scandal, foolishness, the sign of weakness. But to those who recognize unselfish love, the cross reveals God’s total love for us.
