ABIDE IN HIM WE OUGHT TO WALK JUST AS HE WALKED
 
Our claim to be Christians is how we treat others.
 
Saint John wrote that we can be sure that we know Jesus Christ if we keep His loving commandments. We can only be sure that we understand the love that Jesus has for us if we practice that love within our own hearts. What does it mean to love someone unconditionally as Jesus loves us? First, we must try it, and then this experience will give us at least some idea of what it means in life. What does it mean to include everyone in our love, making it universal, as Jesus does? Saint John says try it, and this experience will bring clarity and depth to our understanding of the universal love of our heavenly Father.
 
It is all about a divine dignity and destiny for human beings - that is a major theme this Christmas season in the writings attributed to John. The dignity of sharing God’s life and light can only survive, if we see that same dignity in others. Without love for our sisters and brothers, our claim to this dignity is a lie. To say we know God and not keep the commandments is to lie; to claim to be in the light while hating others means we are really still in darkness. Our true test of dignity happens as sharers in God’s life!
 
In the responsorial psalm we acclaim: Let the heavens be glad and the earth rejoice! We are called to a newness of life, singing a new song. Jesus Christ teaches us to live a new life each day and each moment with all the freshness of dawn.
 
Points to Pray and Ponder: Saint John gave us this challenge today and for everyday of our lives. To abide in Him we must walk just as He walked. Do you have hope in your life?
