On Sunday, Jesus called together a group of disciples and equipped them to share the good news and cast out demons. They were an extension of his own ministry. Also, he knit together a new family: “Those who do the will of my Father are my mother, my sister, and my brothers.” Jesus turns us from all that clamors about us and points us to the one thing that matters, to seek and to know the will of God and to do it. He calls us to repent from our own ways and to follow the call of Jesus to life everlasting. To that end, we must pray: “Not my will be done, but thine, O Lord.” It is my prayer that our congregation continues to be knit together into the family of God, the mystical body of Jesus Christ and that above all, we seek to know and do the will of the Father. There is no higher call!
Blessings on your week –
