KNOWING THE ONLY AND ONE GOSPEL, Revd Fr Oluwafemi Victor Orilua, CSSp

HOMILY, MONDAY OF THE 27TH WEEK IN ORDINARY TIME YEAR A

Gal 1:6-12, Luke 10:25-37

It is difficult to convert those who know the truth but don’t want to practice it. It will be difficult to confuse those who know the true gospel and are sincere in living it out.

In the first reading, Paul said, “Brethren: I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel- Not that there is another, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ.”Gal 1:6-7

Moreover, in our today’s gospel, when the lawyer came to test Jesus, he said, “Teacher, what shall I do to inherit eternal life? Jesus said to him, what is written in the law? What do you read there?” Luke 10:25-26

As Christians, we have the gospel as our template. The word of God as it was handed over to us remains the compass for true living. Though we may not be fixated on written words of the scripture, any revelation that is contrary to what is written is not of Christ.

The gospels of Christ as handed down to us were written by eye-witnesses, but the message of Paul came through revelation. And he said, “For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.” Gal 1:12 There are many preachers today, who move about claiming to have received one revelation or the other.

We must be careful lest we take in message or revelations that are against the gospel of Christ. We must study the word and ask the Lord to enlighten us so that no man will confuse us with wrong doctrines. It is the truth that will set us free. For those who love Christ and believe in him, he will manifest himself and no false messenger can confuse them. John 14:21

I pray that the word of God will dwell in us in all its richness, that through it we may gain life eternal. Amen.
