Our Savior Christ Jesus destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel - Daily Bible Readings September 26,2015

1ST READING
 
Zechariah told the Israelites who chose to stay in Babylon that the nation’s days of greatness were about to end. They must return to Jerusalem while they still can. This is the problem with worldly wealth — it ties us down to a particular place. It is very hard to take a mansion with you on a journey. However, the only journey that really matters is the one to eternal life, where God has already prepared homes for us. We do not need the wealth of this world in heaven. We have to overcome sin and worldly possessions, or we may miss out on eternal life.
 
Zechariah 2:5-9, 14-15
I, Zechariah, raised my eyes and looked: there was a man with a measuring line in his hand. I asked, “Where are you going?” He answered, “To measure Jerusalem, to see how great is its width and how great its length.” Then the angel who spoke with me advanced, and another angel came out to meet him and said to him, “Run, tell this to that young man: People will live in Jerusalem as though in open country, because of the multitude of men and beasts in her midst. But I will be for her an encircling wall of fire, says the Lord, and I will be the glory in her midst.” 14 Sing and rejoice, O daughter Zion! See, I am coming to dwell among you, says the Lord. 15 Many nations shall join themselves to the Lord on that day, and they shall be his people, and he will dwell among you.

Jeremiah 31:10, 11-12, 13
R: The Lord will guard us as a shepherd guards his flock.
10 Hear the word of the Lord, O nations, proclaim it on distant isles, and say: He who scattered Israel, now gathers them together, he guards them as a shepherd guards his flock. (R) 11 The Lord shall ransom Jacob, he shall redeem him from the hand of his conqueror. 12 Shouting, they shall mount the heights of Zion, they shall come streaming to the Lord’s blessings. (R) 13 Then the virgins shall make merry and dance, and young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into joy, I will console and gladden them after their sorrows. (R)
 
GOSPEL
 
Jesus spoke once again about His Passion, but His disciples did not understand and were afraid to broach the question to Him. Let us never be afraid to bring our questions to Jesus. The more we understand His will, the better we will be able to follow it. Jesus appreciates outright when we seek clarification because it means we are attentive to what He is asking of us and shows our desire to do well. Fear is not a part of discipleship. We can be sure that God welcomes our going to Him for advice.
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
Our Savior Christ Jesus destroyed death and brought life to light through the Gospel.
 
Luke 9:43-45
43 While they were all amazed at his every deed, Jesus said to his disciples, 44 “Pay attention to what I am telling you. The Son of Man is to be handed over to men.” 45 But they did not understand this saying; its meaning was hidden from them so that they should not understand it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying.
 
think: The more we understand Jesus’ will, the better we will be able to follow it.
