Jesus sent his disciples out as messengers to proclaim that the kingdom of God has come near. The disciples came back from their travels with joy, for they were amazed about how well things had gone. In the same way, when we go out as Jesus instructs us, we like the disciples are often filled with joy and thanksgiving for the wonderful things that are done in Jesus’ name.
We can rejoice when we are God’s hands and feet in spreading God’s love to those whom we meet. May we be open to being God’s messengers in our daily walk, and may we be open to God’s spirit by our daily prayer, Bible study, and reflection, which supplies what is needed for this journey! Vernon T.
