1 Corinthians 7: 32-35 Mark 1:21-28
And for us, how does this question resonate? Are we in a state of readiness to answer: “what have you to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth?” At some point on our journey, we knew the answer was “EVERYTHING.” We also know the invitation to discipleship is ongoing, and as in the process of truly understanding, it is revealed along the way. So “if today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts.” Paul reminds us to keep our priorities straight and avoid distractions that keep us from attending to what truly is most needed for our world today. By the grace of God, we can dispel that which prevents us from being faithful to the mission of the Gospel. We have been called to know the “Holy One of God” and embrace the world through our discipleship.
