Sunday Reflection

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body

In today’s gospel Jesus’ continued instruction to the apostles is important to their mission in serving him. But this mission of service is ours, too. But our walk with Christ can easily be stifled by our fears of what others’ think. Being a Christian in this world means being not only a disciple (a learner) but an apostle (one sent forth). Jesus’ words for the twelve are also words for us. We are called not fear but to proclaim the love of Christ with our lives. We are called to witness our Christian faith to all people by our acts of love, forgiveness, and self giving. We are called to acknowledge Jesus before others, witnessing the joy his love has brought to our lives and Jesus’ desire to give mercy and love to all.
