Are you a believer? Do you allow yourself to grow in your faith by reading the Bible and spiritual books, attending seminars, and other ways? - Daily Bible Reflections June 9,2014


WANTED: CATECHISTS
 
And he opened his mouth and taught them... – Matthew 5:2
 
       When Jesus walked the earth, it wasn’t enough for Him to just model by His life and examples how we should follow Him. Notice that people didn’t understand many of the things that Jesus said and did. That’s why teaching was an important part of the way the Lord evangelized, especially since His ways are not our ways. He had to explain what He did and taught, especially since it was revolutionary and sometimes even contrary to what the people knew about God.
       As a catechist, I see my role as crucial because Christian doctrines and teachings that were revolutionary during Jesus’ time are now considered old-fashioned and passé. The world teaches freedom as opposed to Christ’s call to obedience and submission to the will of God.
       As followers of Jesus, we need to teach. We need to catechize to bring people back to the faith. The bad news is there’s not enough of us, and not all baptized parents effectively catechize their children.
       Let’s do our part and share our faith! Cristy Galang (cristy_cc@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: Are you a believer? Do you allow yourself to grow in your faith by reading the Bible and spiritual books, attending seminars, and other ways?
 
Here I am, Lord, ready to grow as a Christian. I am willing to serve You to evangelize others. May You use me to bring the faith to others.
 
St. Ephrem, deacon and doctor of the Church, pray for us.
