THE WORD COMES ALIVE!

Scripture: read Luke 4: 14-21
 
Reflection:
 
The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has
anointed me to bring good news to  the poor. He has
sent me to proclaim release to the captives and
recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go
free,to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor.' And he
rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant, and
sat down...Then he began to say to them, 'Today this
scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing (v v. 17-21)
 
     It was not an unusual thing for Jesus to stand in to
read the Scriptures; this was something he had done
many times before. However, this day was different. This
was more than a cursory reading of sacred test; today
the Scriptures came alive. Jesus was (and is) the living
word! His life personified that prophetic message, and
his works would make words of Scripture tangible in
the lives of others.
     When we read the Scriptures, that should be the cry
of our hearts.  We should hunger for the word to come
alive in our actions every day.
 
Prayer:
 
Father may your word become tangible and real in my life.
Help me not only to hear and read, but to live and do your
word each day. Amen
