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).

Do not fear, Mary, for God has looked kindly on you (Luke 1:30).

Anything worth doing is worth doing poorly. - G. K. Chesterton

My Reflection for Saturday June 29, Solemnity of Saints Peter and Paul, Apostles: Matthew 16:13-19

My Reflection:
After Peter correctly answered the question of Jesus about His true identity. Jesus told Peter that the enlightenment to know Him came from God and not from his own. Thus being the anointed one Peter was chosen by Jesus to be the first head of the church. It was not by Peter’s own effort that he was chosen it was rather God who chose Peter.   

How many times have we credited ourselves for our achievements and success?    How many times have we owned to ourselves our knowledge about God? Many of us would always attribute to ourselves and through our hardwork everything that we know and have.

But in reality, what we know and have right now is purely a gift from God. Amongst the many we were anointed by God with those gifts not for us to boast about it. But to humbly use it for the greater glory of the kingdom of God in this world.

The Apostles Peter and Paul used their God given gifts to humbly advance God’s kingdom.

How about us... ?
