Ezek 43:1-7ab
Ps 85:9ab+10, 11-12, 13-14
Matt 23:1-12

Today's Gospel reading speaks of Jesus as our only teacher and master.  Jesus is many things in our lives on top of being our teacher and master.  He is our healer, redeemer, and savior.  He is our high priest and our only ticket into eternity in Heaven.  Jesus is so many things in our lives and he fulfills all of our needs in every way.  

I have an acquaintance that is struggling with faith and God.  Having been a Christian my whole life, it is hard for me to see how people could not accept Jesus because he is the reason that we live.  To me it is so simple, but to others who did not grow up the way I did it is a huge struggle.  This person deals with addictions and sin in his life daily, and I can see Satan taking hold of him.  Yesterday I told him that God is fighting for him every single day and he did not know what to say to that.  I hope some day he can see Jesus as his teacher and his master and all the other things that Jesus is to us as Christians.  

We are called to be servants of Christ and humble ourselves before him.  When we know someone who struggles with his/her faith, let us not be quick to give up on them.  It's important that we try to help people see Jesus in his true light because he is the one who saves.
