2020 EPIPHANY Invitation

Invitation...Into Discipleship
 
Focus Scriptures: 
1 Corinthians 1:10-18
Matthew 4:12-23
 

Jesus is beginning his ministry in Galilee with an invitation to repentance and to following him. This is an invitation to discipleship where our lives take on a new direction and we follow Jesus’ call to a life of worship and service to our neighbor. Jesus announces that God’s Kingdom is close and all are able to participate in it. St. Paul is inviting the people of the early church in Corinth to share the same mind as Christ and to put to the side their differences for the sake of the message they are all called to share with the world around them. Both lessons teach us that we are invited into a life of discipleship where we love God and neighbor as participants in God’s unfolding kingdom.

Invitation Out of Fear

“The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When evildoers assail me to devour my flesh—my adversaries and foes—they shall stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war rise up against me, yet I will be confident.” Psalm 27: 1-3. When we place our trust in God we are making a choice to live in the faith given to us in the Holy Spirit over our fears. Having faith does not mean our lives will not have their challenges but it does mean that we will have confidence to face the reality of our problems. When troubles or even doubt enter our lives, faith becomes the light on our path. This is a daily invitation given to us through faith in something greater than ourselves. Prayer: “God our protection, you are our shield and stronghold. Help me to trust in your love and grace that I may face this day with confidence. Amen”
