The Word of God

Mark 16:15-20

And he said to them, 'Go into all the world and proclaim the good news to the whole creation. The one who believes and is baptized will be saved; but the one who does not believe will be condemned. And these signs will accompany those who believe: by using my name they will cast out demons; they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakes in their hands, and if they drink any deadly thing, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.'

Some thoughts on today's scripture

Active
Default
  • Here Jesus sends forth the disciples. They had been called to be with him and to be sent out (Mark 3:14). They are to be brave, despite their fears. ‘The Lord will work with them and confirm the message.’ Resurrection has happened. The Crucified One now walks the earth in the person of his disciples.
  • Lord, send me out each day, to witness to you by my actions. I am to minister to you in the sick, the poor, the hungry, the displaced and the imprisoned of our world.

Conversation

Jesus, You always welcomed little children when you walked on this earth. Teach me to have a childlike trust in you. To live in the knowledge that You will never abandon me.

Conclusion

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end.

Amen
