Everything that has happened in this particular gospel of Matthew had been foretold by the prophets. “The Son of Man is going to his fate as the scriptures say he will.” (26:24). Unbelievers doubted Jesus as the Messiah because he did not even try to defend himself when he was humiliated, persecuted and put to death on the cross. For them, his passiveness and rejection of violence was a clear sign of defeat.

Like them, we too fall into the same situation when we do not recognize the Messiah in people who represent the poor, the needy, the sick and the powerless. We are just like them when we fail to see the suffering of others and just decide to look the other way. We become conspirators to violence when we remain silent and tolerate the injustice or oppression handed down to our fellow human being.

If we focus and ponder upon the sacrifice of Jesus when he shed his blood for us on the cross, we can only arrive at a conclusion that indeed his love for all of us is real. We can always rely on His promise for His resurrection was a fulfillment of His word. May we follow Jesus not just by declaring ourselves as His disciples but by having the courage of standing up for what is right and doing even the difficult things in the name of love, just like Jesus did.
