The Conversion of St Paul the Apostle : Thursday, 25th January 2024

Daily Word Of God

Mark 16:15-18

Jesus showed himself to the Eleven said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the gospel to all creation. Whoever believes and is baptised will be saved; whoever does not believe will be condemned.

‘These are the signs that will be associated with believers: in my name they will cast out devils; they will have the gift of tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands and be unharmed should they drink deadly poison; they will lay their hands on the sick, who will recover.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

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

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus commissioned all of us to proclaim the good news of salvation to all peoples in the world. We will be supported by the Risen Christ who works in and through us by the power of His Holy Spirit.


  • It is important that we live in hope as we can easily be discouraged by the pains and sufferings in the world. Jesus continues to send His Holy Spirit to us to renew and strengthen the body of Christ and to equip it for effective ministry and mission work world-wide.


  • Do you witness to others the joy of the Good News of salvation? As we are each missioned by Christ to be herald of the Good News through the witness of our daily living, is Jesus proud of our work?
