Wednesday of the Fourteenth Week in Ordinary Time (YEAR 2013)

Meditation on Today's Scripture:
Jesus commissioned his disciples to do the works which he did to speak God's word and to bring his healing power to the tired and oppressed. In the choice of the twelve apostles we see a feature feature of God's work: Jesus chose very common people. They were non-professionals, had no wealth or position. When Jesus proclaimed the good news of God's kingdom he also demonstrated the power of the gospel with mystical signs and wonders. Jesus healed people who suffered physical, emotional, and mental illnesses. He freed people from spiritual repression to sin and demonic powers. Jesus gave his disciples the same authority he had to heal and set people free from spiritual oppression. They were chosen from the common people who did normal things, had no special education, and no social advantages. Jesus wanted common people who could take a job and do it unusually well. He chose these men, not for what they were, but for what they would be competent of becoming under his direction and power. When the Lord calls us to serve, we must not think we have nothing or very little to offer. The Lord takes what common people, like us, can offer and uses it for immensity in his kingdom. Do we believe that God wants to work in and through you for his glory?
Word of the Day...
Philippians 1:6 He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Prayer ...
Thank you Father, for being at work in our life. We confess that at times you seem far-away, but looking back over the crucial moments of our lives; we can see your fingerprints and your grace leading us to where we are today. Dear Father, please make your presence even more powerfully known in our lives as we seek your will and commit to live to your glory. In the name of Infant Jesus our Lord we pray. Amen.

1And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every infirmity. 2 The names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zeb'edee, and John his brother; 3 Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew the tax collector; James the son of Alphaeus, and Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Cananaean, and Judas Iscariot, who betrayed him. 5 These twelve Jesus sent out, charging them, "Go nowhere among the Gentiles, and enter no town of the Samaritans, 6 but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. 7 And preach as you go, saying, `The kingdom of heaven is at hand.'
