Whoever serves Me must follow Me.
A covenant is a formal alliance or agreement made by God with His human family. Throughout the bible, we hear about God's covenant with His people. Our role in this covenantal relationship is to honor and obey God. In doing so, God will grant us love, happiness, and eternal life with Him.
Today's Gospel shows us that Jesus is the embodiment of God's covenant with His people. First, Jesus obeys God. Even though Jesus is God's Son, Jesus accepts the road He must travel to do God's will. We, too, have to live our lives in obedience to God. We must patiently bear our crosses as we live our lives doing God's will.
Second, Jesus is the reward for keeping our covenant with God. Jesus shows us the way to eternal life. Through His suffering and death, He has opened the gates of heaven for us so that eternal life is possible.
A covenantal agreement is a two-way street. Jesus shows us the way to fulfill our end of the agreement.
