To serve in spirit and in truth
  • Acts 16:11-15
  • Psalm 149:1-6,9
  • John 15:26--16:4

In the city of Philippi, God inspires Saint Paul’s missionary work. It is God’s work and his plan. When I take the initiative to honour my calling to serve, it is God who knows and moves his plan forward. Today’s Gospel proclamation calls us to witness to Jesus in truth as the Spirit of truth will witness to Jesus. In this vociferously secular society we are called to serve in, where “Truth” is subjective in the chaos of suffering and unbelief, I struggle in the face of sarcasm and doubt. I stutter and splutter in the face of horror and wickedness that challenges the presence of a loving God.

Today’s message heartens me with Jesus’ promise of the presence of the Holy Spirit to coun- sel and guide me, to lead me in truth and wisdom so I may not stumble as I navigate this path of his calling. Jesus says, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (Jn 14:6). I am invited to seek and listen to that voice and wait on God to lead the way, so that I could reach those he wants me to reach and carry with me those he wants me to carry on my path.
