Transforming love of Jesus
  • Colossians 2:6-15
  • Psalm 145:1-2,8-11
  • Luke 6:12-19

Today’s Gospel proclamation illustrates the scenario where the apostles received their calling. These twelve men were not those who held position, prestige, or power in society but were those who did not have any education or social status. Jesus chose them and appointed them as his apostles not because of their capabilities, but because he was assured of what God was capable of doing through them. Similarly, God has extended an invitation to us to serve him and continue his mission. Are we ready to respond to this call? St Paul teaches us that the ideal way to respond to this calling is to build our lives in Christ. This becomes possible only through prayer. When we are united with Christ, we let God work through us. Just like Jesus manifested the power of God by being united to the Father, when we unite with Christ, we will be able to do the same. Let us surrender our weak and broken lives into the hands of Jesus. Through him we gain transformation and the power to continue his mission and spread his love to others.

Prayer: Abba Father, may my heart always rejoice in you. Amen.
