What if in His humanity Jesus has no power to heal, has no power to teach and preach. Would they have followed Him then?
What if despite of our regular Mass attendance and the good works that we do God would still not hear our pleadings and prayers. Would we still follow Him?
In the gospel, Jesus’ fame spread like wildfire, His followers grew like the waves of a tsunami. All because of the many miracles and healings that He has done.
If we follow Jesus based on His miracles and healings our discipleship is still shallow and superficial.
I am with you always until the end of this world - Jesus (Matthew 28:20).
Preach the Word in season and out of season reproving, rebuking or advising always with patience and providing instructions (2 Timothy 4:2).
Preach the gospel at all times use words if necessary. - St. Francis of Asisi
Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton
