We praise you, O God, we acclaim you as Lord; the glorious company of Apostles praise you - Daily Bible Readings October 27, 2015


1ST READING
 
When you build a house, it is important that the walls are aligned and vertical. If they are not, the house will fall down. If not now, then later on. The same is true in the spiritual life. If we fail to align our lives with the truths of the  Gospel, then we will eventually fall away from the faith. This is not just a possibility. It is inevitable.
 
Ephesians 2:19-22
19 Brothers and sisters: You are no longer strangers and sojourners, but you are fellow citizens with the holy ones and members of the household of God, 20 built upon the foundation of the Apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the capstone. 21 Through him the whole structure is held together and grows into a temple sacred in the Lord; 22 in him you also are being built together into a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.
 
P S A L M
 
Psalm 19:2-3, 4-5
R: Their message goes out through all the earth.
1 [2] The heavens declare the glory of God, and the firmament proclaims his handiwork. 2 [3] Day pours out the word to day, and night to night imparts knowledge. (R) 3 [4] Not a word nor a discourse whose voice is not heard; 4 [5] through all the earth their voice resounds, and to the ends of the world, their message. (R)
 
GOSPEL
 
 
It must have been quite an imposing experience to see all of the miracles that Jesus worked. I wonder what it was like to be an apostle, thinking that one day they would have to carry on the preaching of Jesus after He has gone. I would have placed this at the back of my mind, to be dealt with when the time arrived. Maybe this is why the apostles were not sure about what to do when Jesus ascended into heaven.
 
GOSPEL ACCLAMATION
We praise you, O God, we acclaim you as Lord; the glorious company of Apostles praise you.
 
Luke 6:12-16
12 Jesus went up to the mountain to pray, and he spent the night in prayer to God. 13 When day came, he called his disciples to himself, and from them he chose Twelve, whom he also named Apostles: 14 Simon, whom he named Peter, and his brother Andrew, James, John, Philip, Bartholomew, 15 Matthew, Thomas, James the son of Alphaeus, Simon who was called a Zealot, 16 and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.
 
think: If we fail to align our lives with the truths of the Gospel, then we will eventually fall away from the faith.
