About Today Readings

Galatians 3:7-14. Psalm 110(111):1-6. Luke 11:15-26.

The Lord will remember his covenant for ever – Psalm 110(111):1-6.

‘It is people of faith who receive the same blessing as Abraham.’

Twice Jesus makes the point that there is no neutrality in the realm of the spirit. We are continually faced with the choice between good or evil, between the love of God and neighbour or the disordered love of ourselves.

The same idea is presented again in the curious story of the unclean spirit which is expelled but finds no place of rest so it returns to its original habitation. Jesus is saying that it is not sufficient merely to exorcise the evil from our life – we need to fill it with the positive love of God. Let us renew our enthusiasm to spend time in the presence of the Lord.
