About Today Readings

Hebrews 1:1-6. Let all his angels worship him – Psalm 96(97):1-2, 6-7, 9. Mark 1:14-20.

He is the perfect copy of God’s nature.

To some people, God can seem far away, unapproachable. But in Jesus we have not only seen what God is like, but we have touched him, and he has touched us. And the message he brings is as simple as it is profound: it is Good News. God is drawing the world into the fullness of life and wants us to be part of that transformation. Yet Jesus communicates with more than fancy words; his whole being shines with the radiance of God’s light. No wonder Simon, Andrew, James and John were so attracted to him. God’s love emits from him so strongly that people want to catch and reflect those beams of light as much as possible. Just the attempt to follow Jesus, just the first turn, draws us immediately into God’s embrace. Let us turn to the light today.
