Daily Word Of God

Luke 9:1-6

Jesus called the Twelve together and gave them power and authority over all devils and to cure diseases, and he sent them out to proclaim the kingdom of God and to heal.

He said to them, ‘Take nothing for the journey: neither staff, nor haversack, nor bread, nor money; and do not have a spare tunic. Whatever house you enter, stay there; and when you leave let your departure be from there. As for those who do not welcome you, when you leave their town shake the dust from your feet as evidence against them.’

So they set out and went from village to village proclaiming the good news and healing everywhere.

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • Our Lord wants each one of us to do our part daily in drawing people closer to Him and to the Truth of the Gospel.


  • However, Jesus emphasises that it is the power of God working through us that enables us to serve Him and His Kingdom.


  • Reflect on your daily living. What are the different ways in which you have drawn people closer to or away from God’s Truth?  Bring this to prayer and speak to the Lord about the way you are living your daily life.
