Daily Word Of God
Jesus showed himself to the Eleven and said to them, ‘Go out to the whole world; proclaim the Good News to all creation. He who believes and is baptised will be saved; he who 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?
- The dramatic conversion of St Paul is a reminder to us that with God no one is beyond conversion and that God can choose the most unlikely person to be His instruments of His Good News of Salvation.
- When Paul was persecuting the Christians he believed strongly that he was living the truth. Thus, God was able to act through St Paul because he had a passion to live and preach the Truth of God.
- Regardless of the division amongst Christian denominations, let us continue to pray that the Holy Spirit will use different instruments to build a more fully united and effective witness of Christ as our Saviour and Lord.
