Bear Witness to What God Has Done for You!
February 19, 2022 Daily Devotion
By Dr. George Ceremuga
Since you have set your hearts on spiritual gifts, try to be rich in those that build up the church. - 1 Corinthians 14:12
The conclusion of Fr. Tony’s homily:
“And so I would challenge you, as members of the body of Christ, each one—what is your testimony? Mine, for example, would involve prayer, the way that when I pray, I am different, feel different afterwards than I did at the beginning; it would involve the way that the Eucharist, this celebration, is my center and it allows me to re-center myself no matter how much I screw up whatever else I do throughout the day; it would involve the peaceful feeling I had celebrating my first Mass, knowing that I was doing exactly what I was created to do.
What is in your DNA? What is your testimony? The next time you are faced with that non-practicing relative, that curious non-believer, even that fellow Catholic who needs strengthening, as we all do from time to time, instead of saying, “You should do this or that,” think about your testimony. Bear witness to what God has done for you.
There are, I am convinced, so many people these days suffocating from loneliness, literally dying to meet the one anointed to bring glad tidings to the poor, liberty to captives, sight to the blind, freedom to the oppressed. It is our task to bear witness to him. And if you feel like you do not know what more to say, it does not need to be anything more complicated than the invitation Jesus himself gave to the first disciples, “Come and see.”
Lead with Love!
