(Fifth Sunday Ordinary Time B)
St. Paul said, “If I preach the gospel, this is no reason for me to boast, for an obligation has been imposed on me, and woe to me if I do not preach it!” 1 Cor 9:16-19, 22-23
Jesus said, “Let us go on to the nearby villages that I may preach there also. For this purpose have I come.” Mk 1:29-39
Preaching. It’s not forcing poison down people’s throats. It’s not being obnoxious. It’s not soliciting people to give something they don’t have. It’s offering a better way. It’s modeling a way of life better than anything imaginable. It’s offering hope in a hopeless world. It’s joy. It’s love. It’s Jesus! It’s an invitation to everyone!
Come beloved and share the Gospel… God loves everyone!
