1 Corinthians 6:1-11. Psalm 149:1-6, 9. Luke 6:12-19.
The Lord takes delight in his people—Psalm 149:1-6, 9.
‘You have been sanctified.’
For Jesus, prayer vigils preceded significant events and the naming of the apostles from among the group was one of those moments. Each responded to Jesus’ call – one immersed in prayer and healing presence can be hard to resist.
We look at the disciples imagine being called to be an apostle. You wouldn’t even think to say no. Which raises the question – are we as ready and eager to respond to the call of Jesus as we assume his disciples were? Jesus is no less present to us. The call for faithful people to bring light and healing to the world is as powerful today as it was then. Do we choose to listen and respond?
