Today’s Reading Zechariah 11:1 – Matthew 4:25
God is always up to something. The question for us becomes do we want to join in on what God is doing? As we begin the reading in the gospel of Matthew we see what Jesus is up to. Jesus is teaching, preaching, and healing. Jesus is bringing the gospel to the people.
Today’s reading is an invitation. Jesus’ ministry is about going to the people and meeting them where they are. This ministry is one that needs co-laborers. the invitation for us is to join in the fun and join in the ministry. Where there is need, there is where we are called to be.
It can be overwhelming. It can be frustrating. There is so much need. So many things to do. So many good causes and great ways to help. What is the right thing to involved yourself in? Sometimes it is important to start at the beginning. The following is a prayer that helps remind us it is all about Christ, an invitation to and an acknowledgement of Christ.
