The whole city

May 17, 2014 11:17 am

“… almost the whole city gathered to hear the word of the Lord.” (Acts 13, 44)

I listen to these words with delight and admiration: “To hear the word of the Lord” and “almost the whole city gathered.” How far our cities are from this? We are more interested to know how many people saw the new movie in its first week in theatres or how to organize ticket for a concert than to gather together to hear the word of the Lord. In His word we can hear about His love, compassion, forgiveness and hope. His word is the Life, the Way and the Truth. Being with Him for a few moments every day means more than we can imagine. And is life-changing.

“If you remain in my word, you will truly by my disciples, and you will know the truth, says the Lord.” (Alleluia versus)
