The Bible: The Power of Rebirth

Witnessing To Jesus The Christ

Reflection on the Gospel of the Saturday Of The Twenty-Eight Week In Ordinary Time

 

Luke 12:8-12

In today’s Gospel passage Jesus is asking his disciples to stand for truth and without ceasing to proclaim Gods kingdom. Jesus assures his disciples at the time of trials and tribulations, the Holy Spirit will guide us in making decisions and will protect us from physical and spiritual danger. Whoever accept the persecution for the sake of Gods kingdom, they will be highly rewarded in heaven. Post the resurrection of Jesus, the disciples were filled within with the Holy Spirit and started sharing their personal encounter with Jesus (testimony), with the community. The power of Holy Spirit were worked in the disciples ministry so powerfully that many people repented from their old way of life, thus the disciples bore witness to Jesus Christ with the help of Holy spirit.

Today also we too are called to bear witness to Jesus Christ with the help of Holy Spirit. According to verse Acts 1:8 “you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.”  We individually have received the presence and power of the Holy Spirit through the  sacrament of Initiation (Baptism and Confirmation), the Holy Spirit continually guides us towards the fullness of truth and truth set us free. The Holy Spirit is also the source of our personal testimony and revelation. To lead a holy and peaceful life, we require the Holy Spirit. Denying him in our life, is actually condemning ourselves to stagnation, death and decay. No one can deny ones own self and live a happy in the world. 

“The Holy Spirit is a free gift who comes from our Heavenly Father, and who poured into our hearts, as that missing peace which makes us complete, i.e. God. Hence without the Holy Spirit life is hopeless and colourless” 

Come Lord Holy Spirit, and dwell in our Hearts. Complete us and make us whole….
