*BEST OF DTB #155* The Catholic Defender: Look At The Man in the Mirror

Posted by John Benko - March 12th, 2012

Hebrews 2:1 states, “Therefore we must pay the closer attention to what we have heard, lest we drift away from it”.

The Season of Lent is a great opportunity to reflect on ourselves and to be honest about our faith. Are we growing in the Faith or are we slipping?

The world seems to be constantly tugging at you to get your eyes off the mark.

Hebrews 2:2 continues, “For if the message declared by angels was valid and every transgression or disobedience recieved a just retribution, how shall we escape if we neglect such a great salvation?”

How shall we escape the coming judgment if we do not take the Faith seriously?

I know that the pressures of life can be a challenge. We got to pay the bills, we got all the problems to solve. Seems like there is always a storm around us.

I love what Hebrews 2:8 continues to say, “Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. As it is, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. But we see Jesus, who for a little while was made lower than the angels, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for every one.”

Through Jesus suffering, we are enjoined with him through our own suffering. But with this suffering, the Lord santifies us in him.

So my encouragement to you is to embrace the grace the Lord offers you for your own sanctification.

In doing so, you will find joy and peace in the midst of the swirling sea. Look at the mirror and see the one whom the Lord has called.

When you go to Mass, you offer up your whole being as Jesus comes to you in the Eucharist.

The following song was performed at an outdoor concert at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Oak Grove KY.

It was an all day event which was attended by thousands of people.

This was also the day that the great Rich Mullins, A Catholic Convert, died in a tragic car accident. He was on his way to recieve Jesus in the Eucharist.
