“…the Gentiles would hear the word of the Gospel and believe.” (Acts 15, 7)
Again and again, day after day, daily readings highlight the importance of the word of the Gospel. Sometimes it is “word of the Gospel” like today, sometimes it is “word that I spoke to you”, “my word”, “word of God”, “word of the Lord,” and so on. Always His word.
We are surrounded by words: news, papers, books, conversations, our own internal dialogue. Our Lord asks us to give priority to His word (before even your internal dialogue starts): to read the daily readings, find a word/sentence for you, and let this text guide you; during the day – recall this word/sentence throughout different activities (driving, going from room to room, at the lunch); in the evening – thank your Guide for His presence, help and company.
When we let His word be first in our life, it will be easier for us to believe.
“My sheep hear my voice, says the Lord, I know them, and they follow me.” (Alleluia versus)
