The power of Jesus Christ, source of our faith

Theme: “The power of Jesus Christ, source of our faith

Text: Mark 2:13-17


13. Jesus went out again towards the sea. All the crowds came to him, and he taught them. 14. As he passed by, he saw Levi, son of Alphaeus, sitting at the toll booth. He said to him: Follow me. Levi got up and followed him. 15. As Jesus sat at table in the house of Levi, many tax collectors and wicked people also sat down with him and with his disciples; for there were many of them, and they followed him. 16. When the scribes and Pharisees saw him eating with tax collectors and sinners, they said to his disciples, Why does he eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners? 17. When Jesus heard this, he said to them: It is not those who are well who need a doctor, but those who are sick. I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.

Let's remember:

The power of Jesus Christ is a powerful incentive to our faith. His power boosts our motivation for his cause and connects us more to his divine person. This is what also boosts our faith in a God who mobilizes the entire universe. The power of Jesus meant that no one could resist his passage, the whole crowd came to him, and he taught them. The divine that he is, attracts the humans that we are, by his power, in order to communicate to us faith and salvation. Through his power charged with love, he also attracts disciples to strengthen his team and travel with him. A power such that Matthieu left his noble position as Tax Clerk. When Jesus calls someone to follow him, his call comes with faith; the power of his call is the source of our faith. Levi got up and followed him without saying a word, without procrastinating, one would have said without thinking. Even at the table, all kinds of people gathered around Jesus to gain a part of faith. His look, his words, his actions, his power transmitted faith to the people who accepted him. This explains why there were many who followed him. However, to the proud, to those who pass themselves off as righteous but are not, Jesus responds: “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” Have a great Thursday. Amen
