The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

The Twelve Apostles and their Mission

The Twelve Apostles and their Mission

Reflection on the Gospel of the Wednesday
In The Fourteenth Week Of Ordinary Time

 

Matthew 10: 1-7

God loves us, all of us, sinners, evil doers and those who reject Him included. Yesterdays Gospel spoke about the harvest, before that it spoke of the yoke of Jesus. All three readings have a common thread – the Love of God. The Yoke being God’s burden to love all humanity irrespective of them choosing Him, or believing in Him. The Harvest represents God’s desire to reveal His selfless, unwavering and constant love to everyone. And in today’s Gospel He responds by acting on his love and desire. He starts with a small group of Twelve, then graduates to a group of Seventy, eventually He will empower the Church to be Him in the World, and carry His yoke – i.e. express His unconditional and constant love, without bias, freely and to everyone.

We too are sent, we who profess Jesus as our Lord, brother and friend. We are sent to Love like Jesus. If you are convicted of this, start living Him, to everyone around you. But will you be able to do this, no. I.e. without knowing Jesus, what will you be -> a faulty and biased Jesus. Therefore, learn about Him by reading and studying scripture. And when you take the first step, it will be like those two on the road to Emmaus, suddenly you will discover Jesus next to you, helping you and revealing more and more of Himself to you.

Come Holy Spirit, give me the conviction I require to pick up the Bible daily, and read it, reflect on it and pray with it.
