THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
The Gospel, this weekend, gives us the very first words of Jesus as
he began his public
ministry. He went into Galilee and proclaimed the Good News from God.
"The time has come" he said "and the kingdom of God is close at hand.
Repent and believe the Good News." People had been looking forward to a
great intervention of God into our world. Now the wait is over. It has
come to pass. Jesus, as the Son of God, has brought it about. He
announces that the kingdom of God is at hand. God has come into our
lives and he looks for space in our hearts. When two people fall in
love, they reign in each others hearts. God wants to reign in our hearts
in a similar way. That is what the kingdom of God is all about.
Two things are required if God is to have a place in our lives.
"Repent and believe the Good News." Jesus calls for change. A change
mind and mental attitude is called for. If we get the inner approach
right then the behaviour will follow. The second challenge is to believe
the Good News. Jesus himself is at the centre of the Good News. If we
explore the Scriptures to learn from him and to come to know him better
we will ensure that we become genuine disciples who build our lives and
lifestyle on his teaching and example.
In the Gospel Jesus chose four disciples, fishermen, who would become
"fishers of men". In time, they will evangelise, announce the Good News,
and bring many to faith. All of us are called to continue their work.
