To Be Faithful Servants Walking God's Talk
This Weeks Readings: Isaiah 61.1-2a, 10-11; Psalm Luke 1; 1 Thessalonians 5.16-24; John 1.6-8, 19-28.
The Spirit of the Lord anoints us with a mission to bring good news to all God's people. When we listen to the Prophets and even more so to the Spirit, we are given a peace which stirs up gratitude for His wondrous works in our midst. Like Mary, we glorify the Lord, and rejoice in our God who has visited His people. John is sent beforehand to witness to the light of Jesus. We are often confused by the shadows of the message and the ways and means of the Lord. Then God Himself enlightens us with the truth of his identity...the Way, the Truth, the Life, and the Light!
Next Week's Readings: 2 Samuel 7.1-5, 8b-12, 14a, 16; Psalm 89; Romans 16.25-27; Luke 1.26-38.
