Bringing people the good news
By Rev. Fr. PaulMary Taiwo Otukpe

St. Paul, writing to the Romans, says “how can people hear the gospel except if someone brings them the gospel”. Today’s feast is about a man who is known for always introducing people to Jesus. He was an apostle (the one who is sent, a messenger) even before he was officially made one. Today, we will say he is an evangelist. The essence of his feast is to teach and remind us of our Christian duty, our role in the work of the mission. There are souls to rescue, there are souls to save. But how will they be saved if no one takes the word of God to them; unless someone is sent, those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, may never know God and the beautiful life that is found in Jesus. The mission to preach is our duty. It has been given to us by reason of our baptism. Go out then and bring to people the good news of salvation.

Prayer: Holy Saviour, the job of spreading the gospel is for me too. I want to partake of it, and invite men and women like St. Andrew did. Help me to overcome all that may be a hindrance to its success. Amen.
