 A Call From God
How do we recognize Jesus? How could we follow Him if we do not really know who he is? The encounter with Jesus is not reserved for the disciples alone, as we have been baptized, we, the community, are joined to the Lord and is with Him in one Spirit and body.Together we should declare in one voice “We have found the Messiah”. So just as Samuel is called, Jesus called on the first disciples, Jesus now calls us to continue to follow Him and “avoid immorality”, for if we heed His call, we are agreeing to being part of His ministry. Hence our mission is to be holy just as Jesus is holy, as our body is the “temple of the Holy Spirit”. So are we ready for this call from God? Are we ready to leave ourselves behind and never be the same again? Are we ready, as one community, to step up and look out for one another, so that we could all say “Here I am, Lord; I come to do your will.”
