INTENTION ALONE IS INSUFFICIENT

INTENTION IS INSUFFICIENT
By: Pastor Adytia Perangin-wind O.Carm

 
At a meeting with my colleagues who are filled with warm-hearted atmosphere. We found a coffee cup is filled and sugar with an adequate dose. But when I further noticed it, I realized that the glass was not filled with hot water, because each of us thought that the cup belongs to the other person. It seems that the presumption the cup belongs to the other person was endless, glass was not touched! Glass containing sugar and coffee remain in its position. Finally, one of use made a blunt remark and said that: "the intention apparently was not enough ugh?" It appears the person who  filled the glass had already had the intention to drink coffee but did not. This simple story would be a gateway to the true meaning of life. Intention to love your family alone is   not enough if we would never meet each other. Intention just to become a true people of God is not enough if we do not spare our personal time for personal prayer to him. Intention to want to be good is not enough if we do not do anything about it.
Presumably the above-mentioned occurence is depicted in today's Gospel reading, it was told when there were some Greek pilgrims who wanted to "see" or to see Jesus. What they dido not mean to say, but presumably this wss very similar to the experience of two disciples of Jesus who came and saw Jesus and then chose to become His disciples. Presumably the intention of the Greeks can be interpreted that way. But Jesus' answer really was very honest and plain without any sinister or  hidden motives, that was: "unless a grain of wheat does not fall to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed, but if he dies he will bear much fruit. He who loves his life will lose it, but whoever does not love his life in this world will preserve it for eternal life. Whoever serves me must follow me it where I am there shall also my servant be. Whoever he serves me will become honored by my Father. "

There are many people who have  desires, ideals, dreams ... good intentions. But, needless to say,  the intentions are alone not enough. Gospel today urges us to tell other people that Christian identity is active! Active in determining the attitude towards the consequences of choice as a follower of Christ. Life is an act. Active in the liturgy, active in the prayers as well as personal group, active in the religious life . Christians who are passive are considered as wheats that do not fall to the ground and dos not die! We must act, but act without intent based on the deep meaning of life will make it float. Always vigil in prayer that the intention in our lives pure and always prompted by conscience to do what is right to avoid the evil. For each of goodness, truth, happiness outside ourselves and share with others is a true proclamation that we can proclaim in the midst of family, friends, community and even to anyone of good will.
Following Jesus is not enough just intentions alone but must be accompanied by action. For every choice has its own consequences. Consequence of following Jesus is doing things because if they do not do it like a grain that does not fall to the ground and does not bear fruit.
