Year B- Fourth Sunday in ordinary time
21 They went to Capernaum; and when the sabbath came, he entered the synagogue and taught.
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusThe Scribes and the Pharisees were the people dedicated to the Holy Scriptures, they were the teachers of the Law who inspired respect for their wisdom. This however made them very proud and careless to the point of neglecting the true teachings of God in exchange for rituals and man made words.
As soon as I started teaching in the synagogue everyone was surprised to hear what they heard, to see what they saw and to experience a presence they had never felt before.
They were not listening to another human being full of sin and pride who was misusing his authority, they suddenly heard words direct from the mouth of God.
I came to the world with the authority of my own word, a voice that commands every time it speaks. My word has the power to create. It is a voice that changes darkness into light, death into life, and sinners into saints.
Behind my words was the power of God proving that I was sent from heaven into the world. I spoke with the wisdom of God, with an eloquence never heard before that is full of humility. I came to renew the world.
My words are life, therefore I call you to listen to them and to put them into practice. I challenge you to change, to become like me. I donít force anyone to follow me, but those who follow me find peace, joy and eternal life.
My gospels contain all the teachings necessary to provide the change required in every soul. I spoke with simple words, full of meaning, so that everyone could understand me.
I did not stop there. I keep on calling everyone in the silence of their hearts to listen to me, to amend their lives and to live according to my desires.
My dear soul, I am speaking to you at this very moment. Do not turn away from me, do not reject me. All that I want is your appreciation for what I am doing for you. Therefore stop and meditate, pray and open your heart, desire the holy spirit to speak to your heart and you will hear my words clearly. Do not be afraid, give the spirit a chance, do not block it with your intellect, become like a little child and lean on me.
I made myself a child for your sake, so that no one could feel inferior to me, I became a man like anyone of you, to demonstrate my love for all. I taught you very deeply with my own words.
I speak to you now, so that you can hear me personally. I died for your sins so that you may have hope in me, the Lord your savior, who loves you patiently.
