FOURTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME-JANUARY 28TH, 2018

O that today you would listen to the voice of the Lord.Do not harden your hearts!

Occasionally when public figures speak, we refuse to take them seriously because they convey the impression that they are not sincere and are merely voicing the party line.The term ‘credibility gap’ is one way of expressing our suspicion that there is no depth to their fine words.The most fundamental criticism we can make of any person is to say that they are not one of their word.In today’s gospel we are told that Christ spoke with authority and conviction; he never was a dictator, yet because he spoke with authority and conviction; he was nailed to the cross.His preaching had a great impact on all open-minded people who were listening.Its effects were staggering because he spoke from the heart and was fired with enthusiasm for the truth.As a leader Jesus has no political pull, or military clout, and yet people were spellbound and challenged to the core of their being by the compelling power of what he was saying.The word of God will always challenge us to the depth of our being.
