In this reflection for the Twenty-Fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time, Kristen Fisher asks us to think about the question: what if Jesus is actually who he says he is?
Author C.S. Lewis and others have said: Jesus either is God, or He isn’t. And if He isn’t God, it’s because he’s either a liar or a lunatic. He isn’t just a nice guy or a smart guy or an occasional miracle-worker. He is God. Or He’s not. There really are no other options. If he’s actually God, as he claims he is, then what does that mean for our obedience? What does it mean about the things he has commanded us to do? And most importantly, what does it mean for you?
