Luke 9:7-9 Reflection – To See Jesus

Reflection on Luke 9:7-9 ~

Aren’t there are times in our lives varying from when we are troubled to when we are joy filled that we keep trying to “see” Jesus because we believe? Knowing Jesus’s touch reminds us and assures us with even a little prompting that we are to share in the glorious feeling. Light reflecting outward from within ourselves helps those who want to see Jesus and combines with their own spark. It can even attract those like Herod who fear believing.

Herod’s Perplexity

Now Herod the ruler heard about all that had taken place, and he was perplexed, because it was said by some that John had been raised from the dead, by some that Elijah had appeared, and by others that one of the ancient prophets had arisen. Herod said, “John I beheaded; but who is this about whom I hear such things?” And he tried to see him.

Thank you for meditating on this Gospel reading and considering this reflection on Luke 9:7-9.
