And behold, a man came up to him and said to him, "Master, what shall I do good to have eternal life?" Matthew 19,16
Brothers and sisters in Christ, we all want to have eternal life. Today, Jesus tells us that to have it, we must keep the commandments (Matthew 19,17). We must love the Lord our God with all our heart, with all our soul, with all our strength and with all our thought, and love our neighbor as ourselves (Luke 10,27).
Love makes no mistake to the neighbor; love is therefore the full fulfillment of the law (Romans 13:10). If we have love:
- we can not commit murder,
- we can not abort,
- we can not use contraceptive methods
- we can not commit adultery,
- we can not fly,
- we can not wear false testimony
- we must honor our father and our mother.
And if we really have love, all we want men to do for us, we must do it for them too: it's the law and the prophets (Matthew 7,12).
Only by this means can we have eternal life.
But if we want to be perfect, we must make treasures in heaven, selling what we have and giving it to the poor and following Jesus Christ of Nazareth (Matthew 19,21).
And to follow Jesus Christ, we must deny ourselves and take up our cross. Luke 9, 23
Dead and risen, he is alive forever!
