Gospel Of The Day - 12.01.2013


Antoni BigCuore *
1st Reading - 1st Joe, 5, 14-212nd Reading - Psalm 149Gospel of John, 3, v. 22-30"Then Jesus went into the region of Judea with his disciples. He was there with them and baptized. John also was baptizing in Enon near Salim, where there was enough water. People came and were baptized. John had not yet been arrested. "(Cf. VS. 22-24). (1)

A.BigCuore`s  Reflection: Jesus' disciples were arguing with a Jew about purification. The Jew was kinda shocked because John the Baptist baptized in another region, while Jesus was baptizing in Judea.In verse 28, John the Baptist says, "I am not the Messiah but am sent ahead of him.""V. 30 He must increase and I must decrease. "Concludes John the Baptist.By way of illustration, it should be emphasized that John the Baptist was the last prophet of the Old Testament. "The greatest born of woman, according to the Master, Jesus."Many thought that John the Baptist was the Messiah, but he said he baptized with water, but He that comes baptize you with the "fire of the Holy Spirit."

John gives a great testimony to this reading, in the case of the Kingdom of God, the greatest virtue is HUMILITY!. And he gave his testimony it clearly. He recognizes in Jesus the Messiah, the One sent by God to be king in Israel. And so it is.

Jesus is the Light of the world, says the Evangelist John who walks in the light, walk in love, in faith and humility. It will not, ever, get confused when the Court of God.My brothers and sisters, we live in that we mainly Christian base communities, we have to always GOOD EXAMPLE, for the community, in order to be truly DISCIPLES the Master Jesus! Amen!
