ON EVANGELIZATION AND MISSION
(Part 114)

COMMISSIONED TO PREACH THE GOSPEL – 17


June 2, 2019
Today’s readings:
Acts 1:1-11
Luke 24:46-53


Jesus himself told his disciples the basic principles of the kerygma. These are reflected in our own CLS, with the following four sessions:

  • Session #1: Jesus the Messiah. “Thus it is written that the Messiah would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day” (Lk 24:46).
  • Session #2: Called to Witness. “You are witnesses of these things.” (Lk 24:48).
  • Session #3: Repentance and Faith. “and that repentance, for the forgiveness of sins, would be preached in his name to all the nations” (Lk 24:47).
  • Session #4: The Gift of the Holy Spirit. "And behold I am sending the promise of my Father upon you; but stay in the city until you are clothed with power from on high.” (Lk 24:49). “…. in a few days you will be baptized with the holy Spirit.” (Acts 1:5b).

Then Jesus ascended to heaven. “As he blessed them he parted from them and was taken up to heaven.” (Lk 24:51). Now, having been commissioned by Jesus and given empowerment of the Holy Spirit, it is our turn to preach the gospel. “But you will receive power when the holy Spirit comes upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, throughout Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.” (Acts 1:8). We are to do worldwide evangelization.

There is no time to lose, as the task is urgent, especially during these dark times in the world. We can hear the angels of God speak to us as they did to the disciples. “Men of Galilee, why are you standing there looking at the sky? This Jesus who has been taken up from you into heaven will return in the same way as you have seen him going into heaven.” (Acts 1:11). Jesus will return. In the meantime, we proclaim his salvation to the world.
