Listen to the Prophet’s lips!

Monday, 24-03-2014

Readings of the day:

2 Kings 5: 1-15
Psalm 42: 2-3, 43: 3-4
Luke 4:24-30

Reflections:

In this first reading, Naaman went to seek for a cure of his leprosy in israel. Getting to Elisha’s house, the prophet sent him a message to go and wash himself seven times in the river jordan. Simple, is it not? He expected extra ordinary things not just a washing in the river of israel that is not as good as where he came from. There is always a temptation to seek God speaking to us only in extraordinary ways, but God do use ordinary means (he is not limited) to communicate extraordinary graces and blessings to us.

So, as disciples of Christ, do we believe in Christ’s love and healing in the gifts he has left his Church e.g oil, water, bread? Do we believe that Christ still work miracles through the words of his Church? Do we believe in the Church’s teachings?

This is reminder for us that the words of God’s prophets carries the stamp of God, for he stands in his authority. To be obedient to him then is to be obedient to God. Are we then ready to hearken to the voice of whom God has placed over us on our spiritual journey to the promised land?

Peace and Love of Christ!
