The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Jesus Chooses the Twelve Apostles

Reflection on the Gospel of the Friday
Of The Thirtieth Week In Ordinary Time

(Feast: St. Simon & St. Jude, Apostles)

 

Luke 6:12-19

Jesus was going to undertake an important task of appointing his chosen twelve apostles from the several disciples he had. So Jesus spent the night in prayer asking for divine guidance. He demonstrates the importance of prayer and being aligned to God’s plan, when we are taking any major decisions.

The number twelve signifies the continuation of the twelve tribe federation of Israel and the term apostle means a representative of someone with the full authority to act in his name and was in fact like the person himself. 

The chosen disciples came from different backgrounds and trades, some not even accepted within the Jewish community and  yet these were chosen by God to fulfill and continue Jesus’s mission on earth.   

How can we as followers of Christ set an example of prayer and service to the others, inspite of our diversity in community, culture and backgrounds. Do we reflect Christ to others?
