7TH TUESDAY HOMILY OF EASTER – YEAR B

HOMILY THEME: HIS OFFICE, LET ANOTHER TAKE!

BY: Fr. Oselumhense Anetor

Acts 1:15-17, 20-26; John 15:9-17

God appoints people to serve. The higher the position is, the greater service one is called to shoulder. Think about the Pope. Why is he called servants of the servants of God? God calls him to greater service because he is the visible representative of Christ on earth. Because Judas Iscariot abused his position, and instead of doing God’s will, went after his pocket, he lost his God given office. Matthias is chosen to replace him in the first reading of today. God’s work must continue.

Friends, we must understand that we don’t own ourselves. Whatever positions we find ourselves in, whether religious or secular, must be used in service to God and neighbour. If God is humble enough to elevate us to high positions of service, how then do we forget we are not supposed to be Lords? If Jesus calls us friends, why then do we find it difficult to make everyone friends? Let love reign in our hearts today that we may not lose our God-given positions Amen.

Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead
