From the start of his ministry, Jesus provokes dynamic movement. He goes beyond John the Baptist’s cry for conversion of heart when he invites people in the midst of their work to leave everything and follow him. The first four disciples, simples fishermen, do so without hesitation. They in turn will seek other followers for Christ. The cures Jesus works accompany the Good News as signs that the kingdom of God has some. Matthew presents Jesus’ ministry in Galilee as the fulfillment of Isaiah’s prophecy, for whom the presence of God means happiness and the liberation of a conquered people. If Christ fulfills God’s promise, his followers have no reason to take sides behind other leaders. All who acknowledge Jesus as Lord are united in him, Paul reminds us: they must not continue in serious quarrels. With the psalmist we can pray to be steadfast followers of the Lord, placing all our hope in him. Those who accept the invitation to be disciples live under God’s rule and in the light of the Good News.

STEWARDSHIP: HEEDING THE CALL OF CHRIST
Just as He called His apostles, Jesus says to us, “come follow me.” Jesus calls us to accept the mission of being true stewards of Christ for His glory and the good of the Church. Let us imitate the apostles and follow the call of Christ immediately, being resolved to commit to a
stewardship way of life for our parishes.
