Morning Spiritual Recipe: OmenukoJesus in “Living the Word”
Saturday 6th May, 2023
Theme: A Nominal or Normal Christian?
One can summarise the different dispositions and attitudes there are in Christianity in two catchy words: nominal and normal Christians. In the first reading, Paul and Barnabas showed resilience in preaching the Gospel to the city even in the face of persecution and incited protests against them. In the Gospel, Jesus expresses shock over the question of Philip, having been with him and taught him for a long time. Philip was among the chosen but, until then, never realised the mystery of the Trinity and the person of Christ in their midst. Hence, he still sought to see the Father. We have several nominal, blind, and faithless Christians today. It is not just enough to answer Christian and always come to church or belong to the assembly of believers.
How active are you, and what impacts has the faith you profess exerted on you?
Let us pray today against the spirit of lukewarmness and tepidity towards our faith, but to profess it in words and in actions.
Good morning, and be safe!
