OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 27)

THE DIVINE AND HUMAN FAMILY


February 22, 2019
Today’s gospel: Matthew 16:13-19


Jesus the Messiah is “the Son of the living God.” (v.16). God the Father and God the Son are a family. It is a divine family that is “on mission.” What is God’s “mission”? God created the heavens and the earth. But when paradise was lost, God sent His Son Jesus to restore us to Himself. Both purposes (or mission) were to benefit humankind as the family of God.

Now God makes use of humankind to carry on with His mission. God commanded Adam and Eve, and later on Noah and his family, to have dominion over His created world. In turn, Jesus commanded his disciples, and by extension us, to proclaim the good news of salvation in him.

God made us stewards of the earth. Jesus made Peter the steward of heaven. “I will give you the keys to the kingdom of heaven.” (v.19a). We work to bring Jesus’ salvation to the whole world and help assure that people will make it to heaven, and Peter is the gatekeeper of the kingdom of heaven. As such, God the creator of heaven and earth, and Jesus, who is the King of all the world and sits at the right hand of the Father, have entrusted to humankind the restoration of all things in Christ.

From the divine family of God (and His purposes) to the human family (as God’s instrument), from work on earth to reward in heaven, in obedience to God’s commands, we must strive to be families on mission, in accordance with the intent of the divine family of God.
