Thursday of the Third Week of Easter

The angel of the Lord spoke to Philip, “Get up and head south on the road that goes down from Jerusalem to Gaza, the desert route.” So he got up and set out.

God sends us forth every day of our lives. He sends us forth to proclaim His Divine Word, to reveal His Love and Mercy, and to show others how to become more Christ-like. He sends us forth to help those who are confused and in need of help. He sends us forth as witnesses to the Way, the Truth, and the Life of Jesus. We might not understand why he sends us forth into the lives of others or what we are supposed to do when we get there, but if we are open to the guidance and inspiration of the Holy Spirit, then we shall be given the right words and works to lead others and ourselves closer to God.

How do we prepare ourselves for God’s invitation to do His Will? Are we willing to place our trust in Him when He sends us forth into the unknown? What can we do to open our hearts to the calling of the Father, the teachings of the Son, and the inspiration of the Holy Spirit?

O Lord, send us forth for we are ready to know, love, and serve you and your children.
