(3rd Sunday Ordinary Time, A)
The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; upon those who dwelt in the land of gloom a light has shone. Is_8:23-9:3
After Jesus had moved from Nazareth to Capernaum: From that time on, Jesus began to preach and say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Mt_4:12-23
If we want to see the light, beloved, we must open our eyes. If we truly believe in Jesus, then we will want, with all our hearts, to mend our ways and teach the world about His light. For what we’ll find is that it is really difficult to teach about His light when we’re living in the darkness ourselves. Jesus preached, “Repent!” If we truly want to live in the light we must first open our eyes and mend our ways. All the rest, that Kingdom Jesus spoke of so often, will be ours when we remain in His light!
