MESSIANIC SECRET

HOMILY OF FRIDAY 8TH JANUARY, 2021
FRIDAY AFTER EPIPHANY

R1:- 1 John 5:5-13
PS:- 147.12.13.14-15.19-20
Accl:- Matthew 4:23
Gospel:- Luke 5:12-16

People with special or rare gifts will always have the search light of the public on them. The presence of such people can be a threat to some men and women in their neighbourhood. However, their attitude towards the crowd who may seek to crown them will always determine whether they will last or not.

Jesus, in the bid to manage the attention he receives from the crowd had to instruct the man healed of leprosy not tell anyone about his healing. Rather, he should just go and show himself to the priest. The Lord refused to glory in human praise. Instead of massaging this ego with the applause from the people, he had to withdraw to the wilderness to pray. Luke 12:16.

The Lord sought to prevent anything that can arouse jealousy or uproar from the authority. He had to establish the truth of the gospel before he gives in to any possible brutality that may come from his rivals. He is the Messiah quite right, but the time of his full appearance would be announced as at when due.

We too must learn not to expose ourselves or use an achievement as ground to attract undue attention to ourselves. God will surely announce us when the time is ripe.

I pray that our life dream will never be cut short, through Jesus Christ our Lord.

First off I would like to say excellent blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask
if you don’t mind. I was curious to find out how you
center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing.

I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there.
I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like
the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or
hints? Thank you!

I’m really loving the theme/design of your website.
Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems?
A few of my blog audience have complained about my
site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

Hello! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after
browsing through some of the articles I realized it’s new to me.

Nonetheless, I’m certainly happy I discovered it and I’ll be
book-marking it and checking back often!

What i don’t realize is if truth be told how you’re not actually a lot
more well-appreciated than you may be right now. You are
very intelligent. You understand thus considerably in relation to this
matter, made me for my part imagine it from so many various angles.

Its like men and women don’t seem to be interested until it is one thing to
do with Woman gaga! Your personal stuffs great. Always care for it up!
