HARVEST OF JOY AND GOD’S LOVE(1 Cor 1:1-3; Douay-Rheims Bible).


“PAUL, called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the Will of God, and Sosthenes a brother, To the church of God that is at Corinth, to them that are sanctified in Christ Jesus, called to be saints, with all that invoke the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, in every place of theirs and ours. Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.”

‭‭ My dearest beloved brethren, today’s short Bible reading reminds us that St. Paul was “called to be an apostle of Jesus Christ by the Will of God.” We have to remember that Paul was Saul who initially persecuted Christ and His followers. It’s the Will of God that we all should be baptized. We are therefore automatically apostles of Jesus Christ once we are baptized. What does it mean to be an apostle of Jesus Christ? To be an apostle of Jesus Christ means that we are the primary disciples of Jesus. It means that Jesus sends the apostles out to represent Him in spreading the Words of God, bringing Christ to everyone and doing all the good works of Jesus.

Jesus will not send out or make an apostle anyone who has sold his soul to Lucifer or anyone who does not recognize the authority of Christ Jesus or anyone who pushes Jesus to the background.

If we are baptized and we accept our baptism, it means that we have accepted Christ. If we have accepted Christ, we should then become the St. Paul of our time and not the Saul who persecuted Christ and His Church. We should change from being Saul to being Paul.

I pray Lord to grant us the Grace to break everything that links us to Satan, and embrace Christ and work for Christ, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ I pray. Amen.

God always wins and will always win over Satan and his evil subordinates. God has granted you His Grace and His peace which will always give you victory and you will always win over Satan and his evil agents, dear apostles of Jesus Christ.

St. Paul was an apostle of Jesus Christ and was speaking on behalf of Jesus Christ, and Paul in this his first letter to the Corinthians told the people of Corinth that they’re “called to be saints, with all that invoke the Name of our Lord Jesus Christ, in every place of theirs and ours. Grace to you, and peace from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.” (1 Cor 1‬:‭2‬-‭3‬).

This shows that for those of us who believe in God and are baptized, we are all called to be saints. It means that we all should proclaim the Name of Jesus Christ anywhere we are, be it in the Church, in the market, in the workplace, at home, in our various communities, and most importantly in our families.

I pray Lord Jesus to grant us the Grace and Peace from our Father in Heaven, to help steer us through the tasks heavens assigned to us here on earth as apostles of Jesus Christ, today and every day of our lives, so that at the end, we will not be found missing in the Kingdom of Heaven, through the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I pray. Amen.

Please do take your family members and go worship the Lord today and spread His Word; and remember to invite the Lord home to come to have dinner with all of you.

Remain blessed!!!
