FROM THE SERVANT GENERAL

ON EVANGELIZATION AND MISSION
(Part 59)

THEY WILL LISTEN - 2

May 23, 2015
Today’s reading: Acts 28:16-31


Jesus said that the harvest is rich. But for many Catholic communities, their work of evangelization has stalled. It seems very difficult today to bring people into our programs and have them persevere through them. LCSC has the goal of massive evangelization. There are millions of lapsed Catholics to be reached, but how can we reach them all?

We just need to proclaim the gospel, and it is up to God to provide the fruit. We do what we are supposed to do, and God will do what He truly desires to do, which is to allow people to experience the salvation Jesus already won for them. So here is our assurance, even as we look at a pagan world steeped in darkness: “they will listen.” (v.28b).

God assures us of His grace and the empowerment of the Spirit. There should be no obstacles to our work, except our own selfishness, fear, doubt, disobedience. These we must surrender to God. Then we can become like Paul, as “with complete assurance and without hindrance he proclaimed the kingdom of God and taught about the Lord Jesus Christ.” (v.31).

This work of evangelization is so important that we need to give our all. After all, Jesus already gave his all. This is then our privilege and the source of great blessing for us. Thus evangelization should be our preoccupation and our priority. We should be willing to expend ourselves for the work. Just like Paul. “From early morning until evening, he expounded his position to them, bearing witness to the kingdom of God and trying to convince them about Jesus” (v.23b).

Give it your all. They will listen.
