Baruch 4:5-12, 27-29. Psalm 68(69):33-37. Luke 10:17-24.
The Lord listens to the poor – Psalm 68(69):33-37
‘Happy are the eyes that see what you see’
Do you remember that thrill of peace and excitement when you’ve shared an amazing spiritual experience with someone? The joy is heightened because the experience is literally out of this world, and we are left in awe. We need to be able to share it with each other, and the sharing is usually done in a way that praises Jesus generosity in answering our prayer or offering us this experience. When the 72 came back to Jesus, they were incredulous that ‘even demons obeyed us when we gave them a command in your name!’ I would be incredulous too if I had that experience, but then I realise every day Jesus is granting me authority in His name through my baptism, to open myself up to His power working in me. How exhilarating!
