What does the Word of God tell us this Sunday?

Living Christianly implies going against the current of many customs and ways of thinking that it clashes with the Gospel. In today's first reading we hear how the prophet experienced rejection, criticism and death threats: "the people said, let us denounce the prophet of terror" (Jer 20, 10). He became a living announcement of Jesus Christ, who suffered misunderstanding, rejection and condemnation. We have no choice: either we join God, or we join the world. We must define ourselves: with God or against Him. Psalm 66 expresses the consequences of taking part with God when it says: "For you I have suffered reproach and shame covers my countenance." In this situation, we have no choice but to strengthen ourselves in the Lord and in the encounter with others who likewise seek fidelity to his commands.

We should also be encouraged by the promise of the great reward that awaits us, as Jesus says in the Gospel: "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge before my Father who is in heaven" (Mt 10, 32). .

through his Son Jesus Christ.
