SHORT HOMILY FOR TUESDAY OF THE 4TH WEEK OF EASTER
THEME: Shake off the cold!
BY: Rev Fr Oselumhense Anetor (Uromi Diocese)
HOMILY FOR TUESDAY MAY 10 2022
Acts 11:19-26; John 10:22-30
It’s Winter in Jerusalem. Jesus is in the temple, walking up and down in the Portico of Solomon, most probably because of the cold. Although there’s a lot of snow, he isn’t deterred. He’s busy preaching, assuring the Jews that the sheep that belong to him listen to His voice, and none can steal them. He does not become cold even with the cold.
Friends, the disciples were first called Christians at Antioch because they had no ‘cold’ moment. They preached to Jews as well as Greeks. Barnabas and Saul spent a whole year in Antioch, teaching and instructing a large number of people. When last did you tell someone about Jesus? When last did you say or do something distinctively Christian? Come on, let’s shake off the cold. It’s time to do some meaningful Christian endeavour.
Good morning dear. God bless your day ahead.
