Reflection for January 11, Wednesday of the First Week in O.T; Mark 1:29-39

Gospel: Mark 1:29-39
On leaving the synagogue Jesus entered the house of Simon and Andrew with James and John. Simon’s mother-in-law lay sick with a fever. They immediately told him about her. He approached, grasped her hand, and helped her up. Then the fever left her and she waited on them. When it was evening, after sunset, they brought to him all who were ill or possessed by demons. The whole town was gathered at the door. He cured many who were sick with various diseases, and he drove out many demons, not permitting them to speak because they knew him.

Rising very early before dawn, he left and went off to a deserted place, where he prayed. Simon and those who were with him pursued him and on finding him said, “Everyone is looking for you.” He told them, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.”  So he went into their synagogues, preaching and driving out demons throughout the whole of Galilee.

Reflection:
Jesus is an itinerant Healer and Preacher He is always on the go He wants to cover as much land as He could so that He could touch more lives. This is what the people in the gospel didn't understand.

They wanted to keep Jesus to themselves and Jesus would have none of their selfish attitudes.So after healing a lot of people including the mother in-law of Simon Jesus moved-on to other towns to share His ministry.

Our gift of knowing Jesus must not only rest within us. We must share Him with others whoever they may be.  Share Jesus in what way? Share Him through your words and actions. If you are not good with words share Him through your acts of kindness, love, forgiveness and gentleness.

Many have superficial idea of Jesus because we don’t care to teach and live His teachings. What a blessing it would be for you and those that you interact with if you would care to share Jesus.

Lest you forget you are called to humbly work in the vineyard of the Lord no matter who you are and no matter the sins that you have committed. Your sinful past is immaterial already what is important for Jesus is your here and now. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
