God, in your temple, we ponder your love.

In the first reading, Jesus is described as the mediator of a new covenant. The Message Bible describes this promise as Ďa fresh charter from Godí. The disciples live out this promise, casting out demons, anointing the sick, travelling lightly and trusting in the welcome of strangers. In the psalm, kings assemble in the temple to ponder Godís steadfast love.

Godís fresh charter with us requires both action and contemplation on our part. Do I embrace this new relationship with God or do I cling to my old fears? Does my faith life include both prayer and good works? Do I know someone who is in need of a new covenant? How might I be a messenger of Godís grace through my words and my deeds?
