5th Sunday - C (February 10, 2019)
Last Sunday, we heard people of Jesus’ own town rejecting him and his preaching.
Today, a chapter later, a different group of people was so eager to listen to Jesus that they were “pressing in on Jesus and listening to the word of God.”
Last week, people of Nazareth could not see Jesus beyond who they were familiar with, as “the son of Joseph.”
Today, having listened to Jesus and witnessing his power, Peter falls “at the knees of Jesus” and professes him as “Lord.” Then, Peter and his friends leave everything to follow Jesus.
What is my attitude when Jesus speaks to me? Who is Jesus for me?
