Raise awareness that everyone is responsible for the profession they have from Christ – to spread the kingdom of God
We are all different. We look different, our hair, figure, face, abilities are different, no one is as sure as his neighbor. We have different jobs, hobbies, hobbies. Let’s imagine that we would all be, e.g., gardeners, our neighborhood would it was like in a paradise garden, but what would we do in the winter and who would do what other. What would we eat, how would we get a job, who would treat us, if we broke our leg, or what we would look at home if it weren’t television, and who would take care of the programs we like to love? Jesus calls his disciples to his ministry in the gospel. “He called to him those whom he himself wanted, and they came to him ”(Mark 3:13).
After a night spent in prayer, Jesus chose the twelve apostles to
they dwelt with him and later continued their mission on earth. The evangelist noted and their names, and we could hear them. They become an extraordinary subject of love. By this choice, the Lord lays the foundations of His Church. Twelve men areas of the twelve patriarchs of God’s new people – the Church. Why have these men received such favors, and why not others perhaps more capable and more learned than they were? We cannot answer why these. “He called to himself those he wanted. It was not you who chose me, but I chose me you ”(Johan 15:16). Christ chooses his own, and the choice is their only title. The Lord Jesus, from his authority, calls urgently but at the same time gently, just as Yahweh called his messengers and prophets: Moses, Samuel, Isaiah … Those whom you never called your vocation to which they were chosen they did not deserve, either by their good conduct or by their personal qualities. “He called us … by a holy vocation, not for our merits, but from his own decisions and graces ”(2 Tim 1: 9).
The Lord also calls us to His ministry, perhaps differently from His disciples, but calling, that’s for sure. He also has tasks for us that await us right where we are located. And what is our role? Translate the gospel message into the environment in which we live so that it may feel that God’s servant resides there. When a person puts himself into the task he wants to do, he is very resourceful. He can do many things, examples of which are saints, martyrs, missionaries who, for the love of Christ, could renounce everything and nothing to them; it was not difficult to do for the name of Jesus.
The fact that caring for flowers is nice and kind and useful; not everyone can do it. But what anyone can do is preach the gospel of Jesus. Not all the same in the same words or deeds, but in the variety and diversity that our world has needs. He wants to act through us so that his words can be heard everywhere. This is ours, a common mission for which Jesus still calls us. Let’s not be afraid it will be challenging; he is always with us and will help us overcome obstacles. Let us receive him into our hearts so that we may be strengthened by him and live in his presence, which will certainly feel in our surroundings. Christ wants to enter through us everywhere; let us not close the door to our loved ones in front of him.
