Faith and God’s Love for Us

Today’s Scripture readings speak of faith, which is “the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Hebrews 11:1). The Epistle tells us, “now that we have been justified through faith, let us have peace with God.” In today’s world, we desperately need peace. All over the world, and especially our own country, we see civil unrest, riots, disease, injustice, and death. Yet St. Paul says that we Christians “exult in tribulation.” That’s not to say that we are glad these terrible things are happening, but we rejoice because through them God works good: “tribulation produces endurance, and endurance challenge, and challenge hope, and hope does not deceive, for God’s love is poured forth in our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.” By suffering, God makes us stronger, better people. Through the gift of faith, we have hope, we can be sure of God’s love for us, and that He has a plan. God is taking care of us, and St. Paul explains why we can be sure of this, saying that, though we would be hesitant to give our lives even for righteous men, Jesus gave His life for us, even though we are sinners!

“Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness.” Our Lord challenged and always challenges his followers to be sure to seek his will. Spiritual fathers and mothers can be guides to help others so that we do not love mammon instead of God. Is a life of increased prayer and devotion to God something he is asking you to consider by discerning a vocation to the monastic life, to the priesthood or the diaconate?
