Hear the Good News, Jesus
and the Word He brought contained and contains more than chores and directions,
it contains a living experience. As we hear this message, we find, if we
listen that it not only speaks to us as individuals, but seeks us and finds us.
When this happens we find that it causes us to do something different.
When the fishermen heard the message of Christ, it touched them in such a way
that the needs, hope and dreams were in fact met. These person needs, the
breaking of walls and freedom that ensued, was so profound that they hoped to
make that same type of difference in another's life. Freedom from the
self-inflicted prison of control, or what ever element of the human condition
that left them seeking searching and questioning, these first disciples left the
life they knew for a new life to know. The message of the Gospel and the
call upon our life is not to issue directions or rules, it is, "to invite
us to still our hungers and thirsts at its table."
Gracious Father, free
me from myself and allow
me to hear and experience You.
Bless me and keep me, make Your face to shine upon me all the while being
gracious unto, that I might know peace. Thank
you Father, for all You have done and all You will continue to do
in my life. Amen.
