Then He invited followers to help in catching people for the kingdom. The first four disciples were ordinary fishermen who had no credentials to show with regards to teaching and preaching. But he chose these individuals, not for what they were, but for what they would be capable of becoming under his direction and power. What He asks of us is our willingness and our complete surrender to His will. God will fill up what is lacking in us. The gospel of the 4th Sunday in Ordinary Time (Mark 1:21-28) tells us about Jesus’ authority. The substance of Jesus’ teaching is a product of his profound, intimate relationship with His Father in heaven. His constant communication with the Father enables Him to deliver God’s true message to the people. The authority of Jesus is established further by the actions that support His teachings. Words and deeds go together in the ministerial life of Jesus. He preaches forgiveness, humility, poverty in spirit, compassion, etc., and He personally puts them into practice. Like Jesus, let us develop a personal and intimate relationship with God and put flesh on the Word of God by practicing what we preach. May God bless you always!
