Still our calling

Thursday January 25th, Luke 4: 16 He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read. 17 The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written: 18 "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. This is considered the beginning of Jesus ministry, the official declaration of who he was and what God had called upon him to do. It is also who Christians are called to be and what we are called to do. The first thing mentioned is to preach good news to the poor, those who are poor because they have nothing as well as those who are poor because they have taken everything and still find life meaningless. One can only assume, after reading the rest of the Gospel, that this preaching included more than just word, it also included actions. It is still our calling.
