On Today’s Gospel

All who think themselves better, smarter, stronger than anyone else has no real knowledge of Christ.  They may know something about Him, even preach about Him. But they do not have a deep personal relationship with Him.  Their egos have blinded them to His love meant to be shared with others. And so they will one day fall with some saying ‘but I did mighty works in Your name Lord ?”

Let us build upon our Rock, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! Let us in humility acknowledge the awe of Him who loves us dearly.  His great mercy poured out for us and for us to extend that same mercy to all. Let us build our foundation on Him who is Love. And love one another as He loves us. Amen

First reading
Isaiah 26:1-6

That day, this song will be sung in the land of Judah:
We have a strong city;
to guard us he has set
wall and rampart about us.
Open the gates! Let the upright nation come in,
she, the faithful one
whose mind is steadfast, who keeps the peace,
because she trusts in you.
Trust in the Lord for ever,
for the Lord is the everlasting Rock;
he has brought low those who lived high up
in the steep citadel;
he brings it down, brings it down to the ground,
flings it down in the dust:
the feet of the lowly, the footsteps of the poor
trample on it.

Gospel
Matthew 7:21,24-27

Jesus said to his disciples: ‘It is not those who say to me, “Lord, Lord,” who will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the person who does the will of my Father in heaven. ‘Therefore, everyone who listens to these words of mine and acts on them will be like a sensible man who built his house on rock. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and hurled themselves against that house, and it did not fall: it was founded on rock. But everyone who listens to these words of mine and does not act on them will be like a stupid man who built his house on sand. Rain came down, floods rose, gales blew and struck that house, and it fell; and what a fall it had!’
