So when I finished reading the gospel reading for today’s Mass, I said, “Jesus is showing his ninja status again.” You know that after He just told the Pharisees that He and the Father are one, they had to want to have him arrested. They were disputing whether Jesus could prove His testimony, and He claimed to have the authority to tell them the His Father would give the same testimony. This had to drive them crazy, they were doubting his veracity about claiming that He was the light of the world, and He goes on to tell them that He is “God”. However, the reading ends with, but no one arrested him, because his hour had not yet come. John 8:20
As I started to write my post today, I realized that the first reading also displays the ninja status of God, by showing His saving power through Daniel, the young man who would never have been chosen to oppose the elders by his own power.
Thanks be to God for continuing his saving work in me today. Like a ninja, the power of God’s saving grace is shot into my heart. I am able to stay out of sin, because of Him. Glory to God in the highest, and peace to everyone who reads this today!
