Third Sunday - C (January 27, 2019)

Certainty of the Message

This Gospel passage offer some points for consideration on our encounter with God’s words and the way we can share God’s words.
-       Today, even more precise, “in your hearing” – the present moment
-       Where we are – even if it is lowly Nazareth [1]
-       The power of the Holy Spirit
-       Jesus’ mission
-       The certainty of the Gospel message: Luke wrote this Gospel to affirm the faith of believers: “so that you may realize the certainty of the message you have received. “ 

It is in this place, today, at this moment of our life that God continues to come and reveal God’s salvation to us.

Moreover, the Holy Spirit is at work to empower us to continue Jesus’ mission.  With the Holy Spirit, at this moment and in this place, regardless of where the place might be, I can proclaim God’s words.

[1] In Joh’s Gospel, when Philip told Nathanael of the hometown of Jesus, Nathanael responded “Can anything good come from Nazareth?” (John 1:46)
