Jesus Order

Look around you. What do you see? A worn out world; a sad and ugly reality; where selfishness, violence and immorality are close to an embarrassing level. Therefore, as Christians, we are called to bring light to the darkness, joy where there is sadness, peace where discord prevail, life where there is death.

Jesus left, for all Christians, a very clear order to this effect: ” Then he told them: Go and preach the good news to everyone in the world.” (Mark 16:15 CEV)

We interpret that order as the most tender expression of God’s love for us, God’s love for all who are tired, sad, hurt, and desperate.

To bring Christ to others, we must repudiate, with all our heart, all sins, the attachment to material goods and selfishness; giving to Jesus the absolute control of our thoughts, intentions and actions.

We must pray and ask today, “Lord Jesus, give me the ability to spread your love to this lost and confused world, May I become a light where the darkness of sin and evil are present. Let me be love where hatred and discord prevail, in your name”. Amen.
