Good News Inspiration for Daily Life
Bulletin Insert for July 4, 2021.
Description: How have you changed due to faith? In Mark 6:1-6, we see the painful truth of what happens when we share our faith with those who knew us before we became alive in our faith. Like Jesus, we are rejected, misunderstood, and disbelieved by people who don’t understand why we changed. They feel threatened by our example; they don’t want to consider their own need to change. We sound like fanatics to them, and they use this as an excuse to remain uninfluenced by our testimony. However, this is not a reason for us to keep silent. Here’s why, in our bulletin insert for the 14th Sunday of Ordinary Time.
We have been called by Christ to share the good news about him. We must make it known that conversion is important, or else we are sinning against him and against those who need to learn more about him. We fulfill this mission by sharing our personal conversion stories and our spiritual insights, and especially by making this an invitation rather than by demanding that others change.
