Luke 13:31-35 Reflection – Gathered into the Waiting Arms of Jesus

Reflection on Luke 13:31-35 ~

My question for all Christians is; wouldn’t it be wonderful to be gathered into the waiting arms of Jesus?  Further still, believers in God could unite to reveal the sly fox’s disruptions throughout the world. We should elevate our commonality instead of differences. It is time to willing love unconditionally and be merciful and compassionate so that we might receive and reflect the glorious healing light that the Lord desires for us. How else will those who newly enter the sphere God creates for us recognize Christ?

The Lament over Jerusalem

31 At that very hour some Pharisees came and said to him, “Get away from here, for Herod wants to kill you.” 32 He said to them, “Go and tell that fox for me, ‘Listen, I am casting out demons and performing cures today and tomorrow, and on the third day I finish my work. 33 Yet today, tomorrow, and the next day I must be on my way, because it is impossible for a prophet to be killed outside of Jerusalem.’ 34 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, the city that kills the prophets and stones those who are sent to it! How often have I desired to gather your children together as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, and you were not willing! 35 See, your house is left to you. And I tell you, you will not see me until the time comes when you say, ‘Blessed is the one who comes in the name of the Lord.’”

Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this Luke 13:31-35 reflection.
