FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL

OUR THEME FOR 2019
(Part 5)

JESUS AND HIS FAMILY


September 25, 2018
Today’s gospel: Luke 8:19-21


Mary and Jesus’ cousins wanted to see him but could not go near because of the crowd (v.19). When told that they were standing outside waiting to see him (v.20), Jesus said, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of God and act on it.” (v.21). That was not a rebuke, was not disrespect, and certainly was not saying that Mary does not act on the word of God.

Jesus is saying that being his true relatives is not about blood relations but is about obedience to God. It is not just carrying the name “Christian” but being worthy of the name. It is the same way with us. Are we authentic Christians? But many do not live out God’s commandments. Do we read, meditate on, study, act on, and live out God’s word in the Bible?

We are indeed children of God.But before we can truly claim to be brothers and sisters of Jesus, we must decide on our basic commitment, for ourselves and for our own families. “As for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

WHO WE ARE, WHAT WE DO

Through all of our 29 years, we have spoken much of our vision and mission, who we are, what we are called to do. We know that we are an evangelistic and missionary community. This has been true from the very beginning and has never changed. We do our work within the context of family renewal. That is one distinct factor that distinguishes us from other renewal movements.

Books and Magazines

The Eucharist is the source and summit of the Christian life. The Eucharist is the greatest gift God gives to His people. The Eucharist is our path to holiness and Christian perfection. The Eucharist is crucial to our work of the New Evangelization. We must have greater understanding and appreciation of the Eucharist, so that we can go forth and truly be effective witnesses to salvation in Jesus.

Servant leadership is crucial to our work of building up community and of doing a massive work of evangelization. Unfortunately, many who are leaders in our Church today may not have the heart of a servant. But Jesus, our Lord and Master, came not to be served but to serve. He is our main model.
