Twenty-Ninth Tuesday of Ordinary Time

If by that one person's transgression the many died, how much more did the grace of God and the gracious gift of the one man Jesus Christ overflow for the many. For if, by the transgression of the one, death came to reign through that one, how much more will those who receive the abundance of grace and the gift of justification come to reign in life through the one Jesus Christ.

One person can make a huge difference in this world. We can lead others to destruction or salvation. We all have the ability to influence others for good or evil. It is up to us to make the choices that lead to grace and goodness. We do this best when we imitate Christ in our thoughts, words, and works. Our lives should overflow with righteousness and good works. We should make God present in the world by being God-bearers in all we do.

Do we appreciate how much God has done for us through His Beloved Son, Jesus? How can we imitate Christ in our daily lives? What can we do to make a difference in the world for the better?

O Lord, help us to lead others to your Way, Truth, and Life.
