Message from Pastor:

 

SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2021

 

Jesus speaks today of the fires of Gehenna, a place feared and reviled by the residents of Jerusalem for centuries. It was viewed as a cursed place, the closest thing to hell we might imagine. It was in Gehenna where Jewish kings practiced the human sacrifice of children to appease pagan deities. To show their utter disdain for Gehenna and the evils that happened there, it eventually became a landfill where the populace of Jerusalem dumped their garbage. Gehenna was a place of fetid odors and unquenchable fire.

To end up in Gehenna was akin to one’s worst nightmare. It was hell on earth. For Jesus, Gehenna is an artfully used metaphor to convince people to live in right relationship with God and one another, or else suffer the eternal consequences of a life lived for oneself rather than for God and for others. By this point in Mark’s Gospel, Jesus is already traveling the lonesome road to Calvary. He has told the Apostles that he is going to Jerusalem to die for sin and to destroy the powers of hell forever and for everyone.

It was Jesus’ desire that we all act in his name for God’s glory, in the same way that Moses wished that all God’s people would prophesy in the Spirit. Doing good in Jesus’ name can help us store up treasure for ourselves in heaven. In the second reading, James tells us you have lived on earth in luxury and pleasure, and that our sins against our fellow humans cry out to God for justice.

Gehenna is all around us. It exists in the forms of temptation that distract us from God and take our focus off the many gifts and blessings that God gives to those who trust in him. Gehenna was outside Jerusalem. It was outside the walls of Jerusalem, outside the protection offered by the walled city. It was a feared place where both people and things were thrown away and left to rot. For us, the promise of life and eternal security can be found only within the walls of the Holy City. The more we cling to Christ and remain close at his side, and the more we demonstrate our love of God and neighbor, the less likely it is that we will be thrown into Gehenna, where their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched.
