‘Those who are not with me are against me.’

Jesus makes us an offer, and it is our choice as to whether we accept it or not. If we decide for him, then we must live out this most important of choices in the daily decisions of our lives.

In today’s gospel, Jesus is saying that there is no neutral ground: there can be no abstainers. His life and message confront us, and we opt for him or against him. A failure to decide for him can only be interpreted as rejection, because it means we decide to live our lives apart from him and in a way different to his way.

Jesus, let all my decisions be grounded in my life in you. Grant me your Holy Spirit that I may discern what will lead me to you and what leads me away from you.
