As we approach the end of the liturgical year, the focus of our Sunday readings turns to the end times and to what is expected of those who claim to be faithful disciples of the living God. As disciples, we are expected to know and live out the covenant relationship that God has initiated and that we have accepted.
Jesus is the norm by which we are to live as Christians. We will be judged according to how we imitate Jesus' values and lifestyle. Thus, WWJD (What Would Jesus Do?) becomes the constant question every Christian disciple must ask in order to be faithful in his or her discipleship. Today's readings offer us much wisdom and deep challenge.
